Note: the white ISS trail that you see in this photo is due to the camera settings (shutter speed). i.e. the ISS moves across the sky at the apparent rate of a high-flying airplane. It does ZIP through the sky like a meteor, although it is traveling at about 5 miles per second (18,000 miles per hour) at its approximate 240 mile altitude.
