The output shows five zeros in a row, meaning that, at 0.2 fps, the still image has already been there for about 25 seconds. After a while the signal is back and we get this:

The script spits out 1's again after about 13 x 5 = 65 seconds. Great! In the meantime, the ISS passed by somewhere over argentina or the south atlantic.
