Romanian photographer Maximilian Teodorescu recently captured this dramatic photo of the International Space Station (ISS) as it drifted across the surface of the Moon. But looking at it a bit closer, you could be forgiven for thinking it was the starship Enterprise.

And indeed, the photo recently caught the attention of non-other than George Takei who declared on his Facebook page, "My goodness, from this angle it looks like a certain starship I once flew."


Teodorescu took this photograph in broad daylight, with the Sun still hanging at 26 degrees above the horizon.
