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). The extremely dark center is the spot of totality, where the eclipse is best viewed, while the lighter shadows are experiencing a partial eclipse.

Although a number of people thought of the space station as a sunspot, NASA cleared doubts by sharing a seven frame image of the epic photobomb moment.

People standing in that umbra would be seeing the solar eclipse as it happened.

NASA photographer Bill Ingalls got the once-in-a-lifetime shots from Northern Cascades National Park in Washington earlier today.

It wasn't just the moon getting in the way of the sun on Monday.

ESA astronaut Paolo Nespoli took this picture during the total solar eclipse of the Sun over the U.S. on 21 August 2017.

When Americans united to watch the North American Solar Eclipse, the International Space Station (ISS) appeared in a cameo during the eclipse.

Nasa, however, has trumped them all - as you'll see by clicking the gallery above.

The International Space Station was caught transiting the sun during Monday's total solar eclipse. Although we don't think those are proper eclipse glasses.
