Solar Sail, with an astronaut doing repairs for scale. This is designed for an animated feature about a solar-powered society exploring space. The design is nature based, inspired by how flowers unfurl and reach for sunlight.

Solar Sails work by catching solar wind, much like a sail boat. This is a technical drawing demonstrating how the ship's sails unfurl. 

The solar sail catching the sunlight just as a moon eclipses it.
