Image Caption: Space Station science officer Don Pettit looked out the window on Wednesday during the total solar eclipse of Dec. 4th, and this is what he saw: The dark spot near the Earth's limb is the Moon's shadow, which at the time of the photo (approximately 0756 UT) was racing across the Indian Ocean.
