The sun gets double-crossedDPMag Published in Blog
I'm a sucker for the awesome astral photographs. It makes little sense, because I’m not an expert astronomer or even an avid space photography fan. But when I see amazing, truly "out of this world" photographs, I can’t help but stare at them for minutes at a time. In these digital pages I've previously published a similar sun photo, one with the space shuttle transiting between the earth and sun and silhouetted beautifully against the glowing star. This one, though, this is something really unique. It’s got sunspots, a space station, and a partial solar eclipse, all captured in one instant on the same sheet of film. Actually, it was probably shot digitally. Either way, what a great shot by Belgian astral photographer Thierry Legault that you have to check out.
