NASA Just Recorded the International Space Station Flying in Front of the Eclipse
A NASA photographer captured a once-in-a-lifetime sight.
As the moon sneaked in front of the sun during Monday’s total solar eclipse, a NASA photographer captured a once-in-a-lifetime sight.
Such high-speed recording is necessary because the ISS is roughly the size of a football field, orbits Earth from 250 miles up, and moves at a speed of 17,500 mph.
To capture such a fast-moving object from the right angle requires not only months or years of planning but also a lot of luck.
