  • Space station astronaut sees solar eclipse shadow on Earth

Also making an appearance-as it often does for astrophotographers-was the International Space Station.

For at least one group of people the eclipse was out of this world.

NASA astronauts orbiting the Earth on the International Space Station will get to see Monday's solar eclipse three times.

An accompanying photo showed a dark spot breaking up white wisps on the Earth's cloudy surface. Kowsky recorded the footage from near Banner, Wyoming today (Aug. 21).

Currently, there are six onboard the ISS as part of Expedition 52, including NASA astronauts Peggy Whitson, Jack Fischer, and Randy Bresnik.

"No words needed", Nespoli said. The ISS astronauts got a great view of that shadow; if we could zoom out further on these images, we would see the moon and sun 238,900 miles and 92.96 million miles above the shadow, respectively.

For the first time in 99 years, a total solar eclipse will occur across the entire continental United States, according to NASA, and 14 states will experience about two minutes of total darkness during the day.

NASA said the space station was moving roughly five miles per second as it made its way across the sky with the sun and moon behind it.
