Eclipse, eclipse...

After a lunar eclipse, there is often a solar eclipse, most cases it's not total but partial.  This photo has been going all over the internet today, so it may be familiar, but still totally awesome!
Earth's natural satellite (the moon), and our artificial satellite (the ISS) both eclipsing the sun at the same time.  Talk about good timing, the exact location on Earth (Oman in this case), clear skies, and of course the best ISS imager that I know of - Theirry Legault.
