Andrew McCarthy captioned the shot,

“The moon and the @iss caught in a sunbeam. This was a transit captured from my backyard this morning, and a difficult shot to capture since the moon was practically invisible against the glare of the sun. The transit against the lit portion of the moon lasted just a few hundredths of a second, shown here in a video slowed down roughly 6x.”
