About the Image

This image captures the International Space Station (ISS) - with a crew of three on board at the time - flying high above Drombeg Stone Circle in west Cork, Ireland. The image was taken on March 26, 2020, just hours before the mandatory stay-at-home order was enforced in Ireland that marked the beginning of the first COVID-19 lockdown measures.

Also visible in the image is the bright planet Venus, the recognisable constellation of Orion, and the faint glow of lights eminating from the nearby villages of Glandore and Union Hall.

I was asked last year by curators at the Smithsonian to allow them use of the image because they loved how it showed two feats of human engineering built 3,000 years apart in the same image (Drombeg is estimated to have been set down between 1500 BC - 600 BC, with construction of the International Space Station commencing in 1998). 

For anyone interested in seeing the photo on display, it will be located on the second floor of the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History on the National Mall of Washington D.C. as part of the Lights Out: Recovering Our Night Sky exhibition which runs from March 7, 2023 until December 2025.
