SkySafari simulation of 2017 Eclipse and ISS

I was curious to see if the ISS would see the shadow of the eclipse and while the won't be shadowed by the moon they will see the shadow at a distance...hopefully.

To do this I set the time in SkySafari to just before the time of the Eclipse in the US. I searched for Earth, and then clicked Orbit. I then searched for ISS and ensured that selected object path was visible. I used QuickTime to do a screen recording with the SkySafari time increments set to 3 seconds.
