This newly-released NASA photo shows the moon, left, and the Earth, top, transiting the sun together, seen from the Solar Dynamics Observatory.
As NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, or SDO, kept up its constant watch on the sun, its view was photobombed not once, but twice. Just as the moon came into SDO’s field of view on a path to cross the sun, Earth entered the picture, blocking SDO’s view completely. When SDO's view of the sun emerged from Earth’s shadow, the moon was just completing its journey across the sun’s face.
The edge of Earth appears fuzzy because the atmosphere blocks different amounts of light at different altitudes.
