Yes, Virginia, Viking shield-maidens were real - and badass.

Meanwhile in the Atacama Desert of Chile, Thierry Legault was so well prepared that he captured two transits: Mercury and the Hubble Space Telescope. "Calsky predicted a transit of the Hubble Space Telescope visible from Machuca (north of San Pedro de Atacama), 4000 m above sea level near a lagoon where flamingo colonies frolic," says Legault. "So I set up a telescope there and captured the double transit."

"At the time of the transit, Hubble was flying at 26,500 km/h at a distance of 624 km," he says. "It crossed the disk of the sun in only 0.9 seconds--so timing was crucial."

In 2016, Legault photographed a simultaneous transit of Mercury and the International Space Station (ISS). "I decided to try something harder this time, something that had never been done," he says. "I did it despite a thick layer of high clouds that required me to photograph the transit blind without really believing it."

At the link there is a video of Derya Akkaynak--the creator of "Sea-thru"--showing more examples and her collecting images. In it, Rob Beshizza of BoingBoing.net pointed out:
Quote:
A funny problem with the video: at 2:56 in, they're seen using Photoshop's color balance tools to edit one of the images, while Akkaynak says "this method is not photoshopping an image." It's surely just a terrible edit and they were doing a comparison

Not as baddass as the Celtic warrior lady who wasted her.
