Very cool, SN.
Wagga sent me a link to a website showing a solar eclipse as seen from space. These are from 1999, but fun to see, anyway:
Edit: ...and the first is a fake, pointed out in the post on the next page. There is no way one could see the milky way with that much brightness in the rest of the picture.http://www.techeblog.com/index.php/tech-gadget/solar-eclipse-as-seen-from-space
