Sure, Supermoons Are Cool. But They'll Never Be "Space Station Transiting Across The Front Of The Moon" Cool.

I'll be honest: I'm not even sure what that title means. Seemed like a good idea at the time, but it got a bit confused there towards the end.

Anyway, here's a series of images that show the International Space Station transiting across October's supermoon. It's from NASA's "Astronomy Picture of the Day," which is also featuring a great pair of "Supermoon" galleries, here and here. (Also, I never noticed how much the ISS looks like a TIE fighter. A "co-incidence" that makes me very, very happy.)

What are those specks in front of the Moon? They are silhouettes of the International Space Station (ISS). Using careful planning and split-second timing, a meticulous lunar photographer captured ten images of the ISS passing in front of last month's full moon.
