This composite image shows the progression of a partial solar eclipse over Ross Lake, in Northern Cascades National Park, Washington on Monday, Aug. 21, 2017.

Joshua Kutryk points out that Canada is committed to the space station until 2024 along with its global partners.

Seems like the photobombing culture ruling earthlings have travelled all the way up to Space and this year's photobomb award clearly will be taken away by the International Space Station (ISS). "We should be able to get a really neat photos with our filters of the sun being occluded by the moon".

Look closely: That dot on the right, near the curve of the moon's shadow, looks a bit different from the rest. During a brief window of time in Wyoming, spectators will be able to stand and watch the ISS transit over the partially eclipsed sun, followed by a total solar eclipse later.

There's also a new area being added to the world titled Bindleton Bay, with areas to play with pets and take walks. As the name suggests, it centers around adopting cats and dogs for your Sims , taking care of them and whatnot.


But that's what happened to Monday's historic solar eclipse, which swept across the United States for the first time in a century.

In what might be the greatest photobomb of all time, the International Space Station (ISS) hovered its way into a stunning image of the total solar eclipse.

A total solar eclipse is seen on Monday, August 21, 2017 from onboard a NASA Armstrong Flight Research Center's Gulfstream III 25,000 feet above the OR coast.

On board is the crew of Expedition 52: NASA astronauts Peggy Whitson, Jack Fischer and Randy Bresnik; Russian cosmonauts Fyodor Yurchikhin and Sergey Ryazanskiy and European Space Agency astronaut Paolo Nespoli.
