It takes the ISS only a half second to transit the moon. If you want to see it with your own eyes, take a look at this photograph, which captures the spacecraft's transit of the moon.

The International Space Station (ISS), with six astronauts onboard, is seen in silhouette as it passes in front of the moon at about five miles per second.

The picture was taken on Saturday, December 2, 2017.
