10 images were combined to make a single composite view of the behemoth, the image shows the ISS – considered to be the largest man-made structure ever to be built in space – transiting across the Sun in all it’s glory.

The photographic feat is not an easy task to achieve as it takes considerable amount of time and effort to plan, track and execute. The ISS orbits the Earth at an altitude of about 330 to 435 km and the image would not have been possible without the help of very powerful telescopes.
