- Millions of people in the United States looked up at the sky on August 21, 2017, and witnessed a rare solar eclipse.
It also revealed a stunning animation from a weather satellite.
Station crew members will have their cameras outfitted with special filters on Monday for three chances to photograph the solar eclipse from windows aboard the orbiting laboratory. "Observing a total solar eclipse from manned spacecraft is hard though not impossible", NASA stated.
The event was especially incredible near Banner, Wyoming where NASA captured the International Space Station and moon simultaneously passing in front of the sun.

According to RAI television, 20 people are still unaccounted for on Ischia which lies about 55 kilometres south-west of Naples. Most of the hospital has been evacuated and people were being treated outside in a makeshift emergency room, he said.
Russian cosmonauts Fyodor Yurchikhin and Sergey Ryazanskiy are also onboard, as well as European Space Agency astronaut Paolo Nespoli.
Buzz Aldrin, the second man to walk on the Moon, used the occasion to remember his own experiences. Northern Ocean County will experience between 73 and 74 percent eclipse coverage while the southern portion of the county, south to Cape May, will experience about 74 to 76 percent.
In a NASA Facebook session on Friday, astronaut Randy Bresnik stated that since the ISS goes around the Earth every 90 minutes, they'll get to see the event three times.
