A solar eclipse and the Milky Way

Picture spam accounts keep spreading this image with captions like “A solar eclipse and the Milky Way seen from the ISS”

This image is not a photograph, but digital artwork by DeviantART user A4size-aka. The image was created with Terragen software in 2009.

Debunked by Phil Plait in the Bad Astronomy blog.
