(MEREDITH) -- Millions of people across the country were looking up and taking in Monday's remarkable solar eclipse.

The event was especially amazing near Banner, Wyoming where NASA captured the International Space Station and moon simultaneously passing in front of the sun.

A composite image of seven frames shows the space station crossing the sun at a speed of five miles per second.

NASA astronauts Peggy Whitson, Jack Fischer and Randy Bresnik, along with cosmonauts Fyodor Yurchikhin and Sergey Ryazansky and European Space Agency astronaut Paolo Nespoli are currently aboard the spacecraft.
