It's tricky enough to get a good photo of the International Space Station as it's zipping across the sky. It's even tougher to get a gorgeous shot of it crossing the face of the sun. Give a round of applause to
photographer Joel Kowsky.
It took a combination of skill, equipment and timing to capture the image. While the station's silhouette looks a bit like a TIE fighter from Star Wars, what you're seeing off to the sides are the large ISS solar panel arrays.
If you want to catch the ISS for yourself, whether with a camera or with the naked eye, check out NASA's Spot the Station site and sign up for a heads-up alert for when it will be flying over your part of the world.
