This Image is Just Too Cool

ESA (European Space Agency) just posted a very cool picture by photographer Dylan O’Donnell. If you haven’t caught it yet, in the upper right you can see the international space station (ISS) passing in front of the moon (from his perspective).  The ISS which is about the size of a football field travels at 7.66km/s (4.76 miles/s) so an opportunity like this only lasts about a third of a second!
