Space Station as it passes across the face of the Sun

An astrophotographer captured the International Space Station from Earth, as it passes across the face of the Sun.

Photographer Mehmet Ergün captured stunning images of a ‘tiny’ Space Station as it passed the Sun, from Germany.



He took 34 frames in just one second to see the path of the Space Station.

Six international astronauts live and work on Space Station, orbiting Earth every 90 minutes, traveling at about 17,000 miles per hour.
