Skygazers are looking at the International Space Station as it crosses the sky, some 400 km above the Earth. Hundreds of trillion times further away are numerous stars in our home galaxy which formed the Milky Way band; captured here in the constellation Sagittarius as it’s fading away by the morning light. Note three other fainter satellites that crossed the view during this minute-long exposure. Turn on your speakers and click on the audio icon to listen to the ambient sounds of birds recorded at this early morning moments. Note the amazing bell-like sound from a bird. Can you identify what is this strange singing bird? Let us know in the comments.
