Is this the best solar eclipse photo bomb?

<p>Pictures have emerged of the International Space Station (<span class="caps">ISS</span>) silhouetted against the sun during the solar eclipse.</p> <p><span class="caps">NASA</span> photographer Joel Kowsky took the image from Wyoming as the moon was partially covering the sun.</p> <p>The space agency released several other pictures, including a composite of several images of <span class="caps">ISS</span> passing across the sun; a progression of the eclipse in nine photos grouped together; and one of a near total solar eclipse.</p> <p>The <span class="caps">ISS</span> spacecraft is a joint project between the US, Canada, Europe, Russia and Japan has been orbiting above the earth since 1998. It hosts astronauts on a rotating basis and serves as a science lab for <span class="caps">NASA</span> and others to learn more about space.</p> <p><img src="https://static.euronews.com/articles/38/42/384272/675x675_bonus-eclipse1.jpg" alt="" /><br /> <small>Credit: <span class="caps">NASA</span>/Joel Kowsky</small></p> <p><img src="https://static.euronews.com/articles/38/42/384272/675x675_bonus-eclipse3.jpg" alt="" /><br /> <small>Credit: <span class="caps">NASA</span>/Joel Kowsky</small></p> <p><img src="https://static.euronews.com/articles/38/42/384272/675x75_bonus-composite.jpg" alt="" /><br /> <small>Credit: <span class="caps">NASA</span>/Joel Kowsky</small></p> <p><img src="https://static.euronews.com/articles/38/42/384272/675x438_bonus-eclipse2.jpg" alt="" /><br /> <small>Credit: <span class="caps">NASA</span>/Aubrey Gemignani</small></p> <p><hr></p> <p><iframe src="https://uploads.knightlab.com/storymapjs/5e163fd9892214b7e30f94249f8f8d25/eclipse2017-usa/index.html" frameborder="0" width="100%" height="1000"></iframe></p>
