Sun eclipsed by Moon, International Space Station [pic]

Photographer Thierry Legault got a little more than he bargained for in a trip that he took to Oman to capture a partial solar eclipse.

The picture shows what one would normally expect in a partial eclipse: the Moon blocking out part of the Sun – but a closer look revealed something else. Up near the top, a small TIE fighter-shaped object was doing some eclipsing of its own.

That TIE fighter-shaped object was actually the International Space Station (ISS), the other spot near the bottom is a sun spot roughly twice the size of our earth. Below, you can see another great shot taken by Legault, this time with the ISS in front of the Moon.
