A SpaceX rocket’s upper stage was caught on camera careening toward a collision course with the moon.

Virtual Telescope Project founder Gianluca Masi caught the Falcon 9 rocket upper stage using a single 60-second exposure remotely taken using a 17-inch (43 centimeters) PlaneWave telescope in Rome. You can spot the stage amid a few “star streaks” induced from the telescope tracking the rocket stage in the sky.
