I was photographing the stars and suddenly the entire field was lit up like it was high noon. It was the reflection of the International Space station crossing directly across my position. Luckily, I had my shutter opened seconds before it happened. It so surprised me I shut the camera down. I wish I had left it open for 10 more minutes to get better star trails. But, what are the odds of THIS happening!

You can go to NASA's website and get notifications when the ISS will be visible from your location. There's also a site called Heaven's Above that provides info on a number of sky subjects. This almost looks like an Iridium flare, not the ISS.
