Partial Eclipse Pic Partly Eclipsed By Space Ship Quips

at

On Tuesday, Europe, Asia, and Africa got to see a nice partial solar eclipse as the Moon passed in front of the Sun, blocking as much as 85% of the solar surface. The extraordinarily talented astrophotographer Thierry Legault travelled from his native France to the Sultanate of Oman to take pictures of the eclipse.

But what’s that silhouette in the top left quadrant?

It’s only a frickin’ TIE fighter is all, claimed StarWarsBlog.

No, sighed DiscoverMagazine, it’s the International Space Station.

Epic astrophotography win, either way.
