ISS Visible During Solar Eclipse

In a very quick bit of non-CES news, check out this picture taken during Tuesday’s solar eclipse by photographer Thierry Legault.  It shows the International Space Station in front of the Sun as the Sun itself is partially occluded by the Moon.  Amazing.

What’s even more amazing is that Thierry  had less than one second in which to take the photo – that’s how quickly the ISS passes across the Sun.  You can read all about how the photograph was taken over at Bad Astronomy.
