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.

This is a projected model for Bennu (which is NOT projected for any Earth impact. It was used since we have a good model for its interior because of the current OSIRIS-REx mission). The black dot to the right side would be the detonation site for a 1 megaton nuclear weapon. The colors represent how much Bennu would be heated by the detonation with the solid red portion being where the asteroid's material would become vaporized, creating the impulse to push the asteroid off its current path.

This would be applicable only to asteroids over 300 meters in diameter (Bennu is about 500 meters) AND with enough lead time.
