What you’re looking at is NASA space shuttle Atlantis seen in silhouette during solar transit. What an amazing image, just thinking of the photography skills involved to capture the image alone is absolutely mind blowing, add to that the fact that you’re looking at the silhouette of a man-made object, containing humans traveling through space against the backdrop of our nearest star then words start to fail me!

You can see this image, and other amazing images  of space at the NASA image gallery.
