    Very nice. Ron Dantowitz, their teacher, had a presence on SeeSat a decade or more ago and has produced the occasional high-resolution image of the Shuttle and ISS using lucky-exposure imaging techniques.
    
    (Slightly OT: If you look at the spectra in the lower figure in the article, I think the bright yellow line in the middle few may represent the spacecraft passing through the sodium layer at 90 km that's used for sodium guide star adaptive optics.)
