The Sun and the Moon

A view of the sun captured by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory on Oct. 7, 2010, while partially obscured by the moon. A model of the moon from NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter has been inserted into a picture, showing how perfectly the moon's true topography fits into the shadow observed by SDO.
