Solar Eclipse, Plus A Bonus Surprise

NASA has some very spiffy photos of the recent solar eclipse at https://www.nasa.gov/eclipsephotos including the one below.

It looks like a squadron of TIE fighters buzzing the eclipse, but it's actually several exposures of the International Space Station crossing in front of the Sun during the eclipse event. The other shadows are actually sunspots. 

No Industrial Light and Magic required, just a happy coincidence.
