International Space Station and Moon Make a Great Pair

Despite being one of the brightest objects in the night sky and one of the largest, most complex construction projects in the history of humanity, these pictures of the International Space Station crossing in front of the moon give a remarkable perspective. The photos, taken by a NASA photographer at the Johnson Spaceflight Center, are a sobering reminder that while we’ve come a long way with space travel, we’re still tiny specks compared to the big ol’ universe.
