What’s more fantastic than a solar eclipse? When the International Space Station makes a cameo appearance in the shot by renowned photographer Thierry Legault.
 
Wow! Check it out…and lots more of his astro-photo magic at his home page.
 
The Space Station raced across the sun's disk in less than a second. He had .86 seconds to snap this photo.
