ISS passing by Lrya

During the evening there was a great ISS pass. Although the skies were very cloudy I manage to observe the pass, together with 5 great children (To whom I give basic astronomy course).
The ISS moved in the Summer triangle, which in this season is already starts to set during the evenning.
Attached are two photos of the ISS and Lyra constellation. I've added some line to give the familiar shape of Lyra. You will probably need to enlarge the photo to see Lyra stars, but bright Vega is clearly visible. The ISS is the long scratch at the left side.
