A NASA photographer captured the International Space Station floating across the sky above Washington state Monday as the moon made its way towards a partial eclipse of the sun.

Senior NASA photographer Bill Ingalls was able to take a picture of the International Space State, which had a crew of six astronauts on board, as it made its way across the sun above Ross Lake in Washington state.
