An Amazing View of ISS Crossing the Sun During an Eclipse

Photographer Thierry Legault shot what may be the coolest view yet of the today's solar eclipse: the International Space Station's weird little silhouette flying across a thin sliver of visible sun.

The entire transit lasted just 0.6 seconds, so it was literally blink-and-you-would-have-missed-it. Luckily, Legault traveled to Spain, where he captured the view for posterity. Check out the full video below, and see more of Legault's incredible astronomy photographs at his website. [via Slate]
