      Trevor is a young man who has decided to pursue technical photography full time. He's all in. His current plan to grow this career via Patreon. His contribution to this project was irreplaceable. He volunteered to help make this video by proposing it to me several months ago and emailing me the coordinates, not knowing that we were already working on it with my buddy Matt Whitman who was miraculously able to get us access. When I told Trevor at the end of this project that it was likely he would have several more Patrons as a result of this effort, it was clear that it had not even crossed his mind. It is my sincere hope that this SEprom comment enables him to pursue a career in technical photography by pairing up hundreds of willing contributors to his work. He photographs Space-X launches, and all things aerospace..... seriously...he was introduced to me by an astronaut. This young man is legit, and his work will not disappoint you. He is going places, and it would be awesome if you checked out his stuff and decided if it's worth investing in someone who is humble and works hard. Also, he can print this picture for you. Please consider supporting Trevor at: At the time of this comment, Trevor is driving across the wilds of Wyoming without cell phone coverage and he has 29 Patrons.

        Destin I hope you get to see this but I just want you to know you're the wholesome awe inspiring dude I've ever known. I'm 22 and a failure at life I look up to you so much and want to be like you dude. You rock!

        SPACE STATION PASSING SUN HOAX BY ‘SMARTER’ EVERY DAY This video is a fake for the following mathematical facts and reasoning. *Fact 1:* The space station is recorded as taking 92 minutes to orbit earth. *Fact 2:* The angular size of the sun is approx 0.5 degrees *Reasoning* For the Space Station pass 1 degree it will take 92 minutes divide by 360 deg rees = approx 0.25 minutes or 15 seconds per degree Time to pass 0.3 deg is 15 seconds times 0.3 = 4.5 seconds *Fact 3:* IT SHOULD HAVE TAKEN ABOUT 4 SECONDS FOR THE SPACE STATION TO PASS THE SUN WHERE IT DID *Fact 4:* The transit of the space station in the video was less than a second. *Conclusion* The video is a fake Cheers Sincerely David Fenton


        I refuse to allow Trevor to pursue technical photography full time. He needs to stop.

      This video always gives small squeeze to my heart (promise its not heartburn 😅). We are currently in midst of pandemic, and as soon as I begin to lose faith in humanity, this video restores my faith back to good people and how good is the god. God bless the earth and the great work you do Destin which I am very thankful for.

    3. Glen DeKoker

      The ISS is so high up you shouldn't be able to see it just not possible. Fake something else up there not that high up.

    4. mozaarrjuhh

      You know, i am not even mad at destin for not making good photo’s, because he just went to his kids, and to him that it is more important than a photo...

    5. Boxersteavee

      Just read the description... Holy $h!t you used a galaxy s7!

    6. davidvdbergen

      next time use the Phantom to catch the spacestation transit :-)

    7. Joshua J Day

      It makes me happy that there are people doing this stuff.

    8. Ethen Marceau

      the moment this was happening i was leaving school. everyone on the bus was looking at the sun out the window. we didnt get total eclipse but it was still definitely visible.

    9. Mini Utopia roleplay

      Wow cool to see a satellite fly by like that I once saw a train of satellites in the air places by space x I was so amazed


      Wow thats very very cool

    11. Timothy Henson

      The space station is going wicked fast lol

    12. shadow ninja

      One time like 2 a month ago i saw this glowing object in the night sky while ou tin my backyard and it was the iss it was moving at that almost exact speed it was awesome.

    13. Zylop6

      * Video gets 2.8mio views * * Sad SmarterEveryDay noises because video is not 10 minutes long * Just joking, your videos are amazing dude

    14. VapoRize

      All i could think of when i saw the station fly bye was that it looked exactly like a tie fighter

    15. Shaik Mudassir

      TREVOR KNOWS MATH!! It though that only knows being drunk in an underwear and roam on the streets. EDIT: it's just a joke, I was talking about the Trevor Phillips in GTA 5. :)

    16. Sam Losco

      That old man is such a sweetheart

    17. Roma Erb

      Coming across this made me appretiate my own smile. I had an anneurysm on August 5, 2017. I had made plans to see the eclipse in St. Louis Mo. As luck would have it, the day of the eclipse was the first day I started breathing on my own again without a ventilator. As a photographer from the Show Me state who wakened her grade school children from a dead sleep to see a lunar eclipse, on a school night many years ago. Thank you for sharing this. It is nice to know there really are regular people who TRULY enjoy astrological events to the point of sharing the exsperience with those they love. I really did not know I needed to see this today. Thank you!

      5:01 So wholesome

    19. Dan B

      Why does the yin and yang symbol resemble the magnetic field of a magnet 🧲?

    20. Astronomer225

      The only thing I want to say is this is awesome

    21. McDylanNuggets

      It's safe to look at the eclipse?

    22. Kbls Kables


    23. Ambient

      Whats sad is, people still believe that the ISS is fake. Its right there, in this video. And its beautiful.

    24. PS3 Mundo Pirata by JooniDj [ES]

      I use iss detector for see iss during nigth 😌

    25. naise niichan

      thats one weird bird.

    27. NBD Hydra

      I thought it was just gonna be floating past the sun. But nah that thing was freaking zoomin

      1. Sebastian Nolte

        Things don't float in space. Like all atellites, the ISS flies around the earth with about 28000 km/h. It has to, otherwise it would fall down.

    28. Bleed Blue

      Tbh that countdown gave me vibes of an actual rocket launch ❤️

    29. christopher Russell

      It kind of looked like a Star Wars ship

    30. Hoovie Doovie

      This eclipse was much less spectacular in Washington from my memory lol.

    31. NinetyFourPictures

      Man imagine how fast this thing was going. AMAZING.

    32. Anthony

      Very cool.

    33. Reece Campbell

      Oh guys. We built a tie fighter and sent it into space

    34. Radioactive T-rex

      Anyone else think "that looks like the death star" everytime they look at a total solar eclipse!? Lol

    38. Nelson Kuhns

      This is incredible!!!

    39. Jim Bo

      The sight is great, but getting the math right is what is truly amazing.

    40. Finnigan Sluis


    41. Skerblash

      We went to South Carolina to watch it.

    42. David Argiro

      Awesome video for so many different reasons. Loved it!

      Flatearther: these Roundearthers go to great lengths to “prove” the earth isn’t flat.





    48. A persun that has a ridiculously long profile name

      Flower: is it night time already? Wait? Now its day? Hmmmmmmmmmm?

    49. A persun that has a ridiculously long profile name

      Person: yes!!! I finally canceled my house energy because i got solar panels!!! OH YEAH Solar eclipse: oh? Yeah... this my day soooooo? No power for today Person: :( no wifi? I HATE YOU I WILL MISS EVER ONE OF YOUR VISITS!!! Person: *realizes that he’s looking into it* Solar eclipses: lol

    50. Daniel Smith

      I was in Dawson Springs Kentucky when I saw it. We camped out for 3 days just to see it and it was one of the best times of my life because I was surrounded by good people from all over America.

    51. Simple History_RBLX

      Not even impressed about the photo just cool that the ISS kinda look like a tie fighter

    52. smokin559

      what amazes me is people really believe the sun is 94.5 million miles away and the earth travels 1.6 million miles a day. use your own common sense

      1. Zeen Daniels

        Common sense is useless if you try to use it to explain something you ignore 🤷🏻‍♂️

      2. max5250

        "use your own common sense" Maybe you should try to listen to your own advice.

    53. GameFly485

      The moment when I realized that 3 years ago during the eclips I was not that far away from him😂

    54. 002-Gannoju Ikshwak

      Is the space station revolving arround moon or arround earth

      1. Zeen Daniels

        The ISS? Around the Earth, of course...

    55. Butterfly Man

      Dude he makes great content

    56. epicEaston197

      are you not supposed to look at a eclipse this what I found on Google (tect your eyes! Never look directly at the sun during a solar eclipse (except during the very brief time the sun is in total eclipse; and even then, with caution). Looking directly at the sun can cause permanent damage to your eyes.)

      1. max5250

        @epicEaston197 They are all using filters (one can be seen in the video) for their cameras, binoculars, and naked eyes, so they need no glasses. Also, do notice that You need no filter during totality (part of the eclipse when Sun is completely covered with the Moon).

      2. epicEaston197

        @max5250 did he tell his kids to take their glasses off? and look at it

      3. max5250

        You are supposed to look at an eclipse, but not with unprotected naked eyes. One should use glasses (not polycarbonate one but real glass) since prolonged watching of the Sun might cause temporary or even permanent blindness (due to UV light exposure).

    57. clive lambert

      Flat earth ha

    58. Neil Cantorne

      Imagine a flat earther saw the ISS

    59. ZenMaster

      1:43 You've got to love that good old-fashioned country honesty.


      3:30 pretty much in the time it took the guy to say the word, "Transit," the ISS had nearly ended its transit of the sun. Fascinating.

    61. Alex neff

      How can I upload a picture of the transit to files?

    62. ardvark84

      No wonder that ancient people believed in such crazy stuff. Witnessing an eclipse without any knowledge of what's going on can be terryfying.

    63. Steve Davis

      Well , you all can say what you like. So get this. Frig that, I saw E.T. phone home on a dang land line phone, it's now nearing Year 2021. Call me , maybe. and it ain't , 786-5309 either/neither.

    64. ZappyKyler

      August 21?? ITS MY BDAY!

    65. S EQUALS rθ

      You know the kind of excitement that you cant describe to anybody. It happened to me too when I first saw jupiter and its four moons. That felling you just can't describe it. It makes you fell so little and gives you a bit of existential crisis.

    66. Sean Mckenna

      3:50 why am I scared at this

    67. Eyþór Úlfar

      Looks like a Tie Fighter 100%!

    68. Kytao Fujimaki

      brain.exe has stopped working

    69. Oscar Tango

      You really dont get the scale of speed on the station until you see it zooming by with your eye. If you blink you miss it.

    70. John Guilfoyle

      The one thing I remember from this eclipse that he missed was seeing mom sitting in the shade as totality approached and every sunbeam shining between the leaves of the trees turned into a pinhole camera shining millions of circles with missing crescents on the ground.

We are Known as the SALT of the World--Then OUR SAVIOR is the ONLY way you can be RE-salted==IN ESSENCE--If you believe NOT of/in CHRIST--you can NOT be SALTED--Therefore YOU ARE DEAD and Don't even Know it..

    74. the POW/MIA newspot

      IF YOU GUYS would SEEK the TRUTH as you did this SPOT--WE WOULD BE WINNERS--BUT, you don't and you won't and you will DIE a MISERABLE DEATH for you play with your peters instead of your SPIRITUAL SELF--therefore PERVERTS just like the Rest of US-and DEAD men to Boot?????????????

    75. the POW/MIA newspot

      GREAT Calculation-- You did KNOW that those whom Built the MONUMENT possibly did better calculations than You Guys??????

MY TRUTH---IS---The ABSOLUTE TRUTH and FUNK and WAGNALLS dictionary PROVES MY WISDOM---My name is CHITTIM(the great grandson of NOAH and another Name for the ROMAN EMPIRE(the Chittim Empire was used as the Roman Empire) CHITTI means ABSOLUTE and ABSTRACT intelligence. I AM HIM whom Killed DULLES/LBJ/RMN for their PART in My Great Uncles MURDER(you KNOW JFK) AS AUGUSTUS CAESAR KILLED Julius's assassins I ALSO KILLED these assassins of the 35th PRESIDENT--I WAS BORN at the EXACT TIME of AUGUSTUS CAESAR 9/23/49 just 2012 years after Gaius Octavian BIRTH at the SAME TIME 7;33 am on ROSH HASHANAH of a NEW MOON on the Fall EQUINOX. The FIRST FULL year of IS RA EL's Return I WHOM RULED ROME have REINCARNATED and KILLED the MURDERERS of my Great UNCLE JFK just as I KILLED the MURDERERS of Julius Caesar. YOU FOOLS are EXACTLY that FOOLS; in total BLINDNESS and Total STUPIDITY of NOT KNOWING The TRUTH. What a wasted SPECIES of Man.. YOUR SPECIES IS CORRUPT and in TOTAL DENIAL==NO WONDER you will be DESTROYED--whoreshipping satan and his LIES--what a SHAME

    76. the POW/MIA newspot

      SO, 6.666 years later from 8/21/17 to 4/8/24 is the NEXT TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE that CROSSES EXACTLY the FIRST eclipse at Carbon/dale Illinois.and Make an X in the very Middle of AMERICA. and 4/8 which IS the TIME of CHRIST. AMERICA's greatest Monument was almost CAST Down 8/23/11 almost Exactly 6 Years to the DAY. The Monument was Damaged and the Cathedral was Damaged quite alot(Millions upon Millions spent to fix and the MONUMENT is still having Troubles--- WHATS FUNNY--almost NOTHING ELSE in Washington DC was DAMAGED ---only TWO MAJOR RELIGIOUS SYMBOLS. NOW---the JUDGEMENT IS Here..ARE YOU READY????????????????????????????????????????

    77. the POW/MIA newspot

      CROW HEART???? OUCH what a name--Monks say that the crow(raven) are the messengers of the Gods????? and when they DIE their Bodies are Chopped up and FED to these Messengers____FUNNY,FUNNY,FUNNY

    78. Leslley Scotte

      I was in Avila Beach California when a rocket was launched and I was ready to take photos of the exhaust vapors but it was so beautiful I couldn’t stop watching it. I didn’t get a single photo. My brainjust stopped and I got to see the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen, uninterrupted. I’ll take photos next time because I’ll never get back the chance to experience it for the first time like that. It’s was like I was watching a nebula form in front of me. Aww struck.

    79. Dapper Genesis

      I'm really surprised this video didn't get as popular as it should have. Great work Destin and Trevor!

    80. ITS_B

      That was definitely a tie fighter! come on guys !

    81. bpdubb

      so what now flat earthers?

    86. MrAngelofflames

      this happened on my birthday. Best birthday present ever!

    87. zbig83

      Wait a minute. WAIT A MINUTE! Wasn't this eclipse this year? Jesus! Time goes by so quickly!

    88. JaWatDenn Jonge

      4:31 sorry, what can I see there?

    89. aj deguzman

      Everythung about this video is Amazing frim the swearing cowboy to the Eclipse i dream of seeing this on day.

    90. This Guy

      How are people saying the iss is fake?

    91. Floopus Doopus

      For a minute I thought you were gonna say that it was a Alien thing lol

    92. Skip

      I was in Casper that day with my family and we were absolutely blown away at how amazing that was. One thing that we were all surprised by was the temperature drop! The 360 sunset was crazy! Just an awesome day we will never forget!


      “The earth is flat” lmao really?

    94. solarsynapse

      I shot most of it except the exact eclipse because some people from Chicago rode up on motorcycles and distracted me for enough seconds that I did not take the filter off soon enough. I did grab the diamond ring in time and put the filter back on for the second half. I should have stayed focused! Pun intended. Maybe 2024.

    95. Vytenis Cubrinskas

      Most beautiful view I saw today

    96. Valentino Tera

      UAO!! In 39 years spent in Italy, I had no memories of a good one solar eclipse.

    97. legrandtc

      I really enjoy your videos, you make it exciting. I love the energy you put in it. To see a total eclipse live would be a wonderfull thing to me. Take care man.

    98. maJR

      Dude on my birthday!

    99. Kaleb Bruwer

      My country's gonna have one in 2030. It might be a little early to do the transit math, though
