ISS Perfectly Photobombs Total Solar Eclipse

Eclipse Day: When It Occurs and How Much Coverage the Shore Will See

The total solar eclipse Monday was the first time one has occurred and was visible from the U.S.in more than 30 years.

This composite image, made from seven frames, shows the International Space Station. It has been edited to better serve our audience.

Astronaut Paolo Nespoli, who is now on a long duration mission to the ISS, tweeted that he was using a camera with a solar filter and 400 mm lens to photograph the eclipse. While some related the image of the station to Tie Fighters (as seen in Star Wars Series) there were others who found other ways of adding humor to it.

Crew members on Expedition 52 had their cameras outfitted with special filters to allow them to photograph the solar eclipse aboard the station.

The path of totality stretched from Lincoln Beach, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina, NASA reports.

Viewing the eclipse from orbit were NASA's Randy Bresnik, Jack Fischer and Peggy Whitson, ESA (European Space Agency's) Paolo Nespoli, and Roscosmos' Commander Fyodor Yurchikhin and Sergey Ryazanskiy.

Data collected on Monday will allow scientists to continue studying the sun's atmosphere, helping to understand motions in the corona, cyclical changes in temperature, and more.
