Of course, the Sun is behind it so that the upper solar atmosphere streams out beautifully. Also the Earth was 'full' too so that earth-shine lit up the surface of the moon and it's not just a black circle in front of the Sun.
As my old friend Jim Barnes once pointed out, one thing that causes you to believe in the Divine is the fact that the giant Sun and the relatively tiny Moon appear to be the same size to us here on Earth. Hmmmm?
