ISS photobombs eclipse, takes photo of Moon's shadow on Earth

The first total eclipse to sweep across the United States from coast to coast in 99 years has resulted in countless beautiful photos of the memorable event.

But one image, taken by a NASA photographer, still deserves particular attention because of a cheeky little photobomber.

Joel Kowsky, on assignment in Banner, Wyoming, took this photo of the International Space Station against the backdrop of the sun as the eclipse moved towards totality.

The ISS wasn't just happy to be the subject of a photo, either. The space station sent this photo of the moon casting its shadow on the Earth during the eclipse.

The eclipse began its coast-to-coast trip across the US, first reaching totality in Oregon then ending up over South Carolina's Atlantic shore some 90 minutes later. – Reuters
