This is a fantastic image of the International Space Station (ISS) transiting the Moon. The silhouette of the ISS can be seen near the bottom-center portion of the moon.

This image was taken by Maximilian Teodorescu on June 15 from Dumitrana, Romania. This daylight exposure was taken while the Sun was still approximately 26 degrees above the horizon – which makes it that much cooler in my opinion. Most of the daylight-images I’ve seen featuring the ISS show it transiting the Sun; though I knew the ISS was visible during the day (if you know exactly where to look), I’ve never seen one like this.
