That's not a shooting star in this picture — that's the International Space Station, roaring over Ireland, as captured by photographer Damien Stenson.

Over on his Facebook page, Stenson writes:

Had planned earlier today to grab this shot as I had calculated that the International space station would fly right over this scene.


Stenson also shared this incredible photo of the Milky Way setting over the Cliffs of Moher:
