I was wondering if the astronauts on the ISS are able to see the shadow from the moon on the earth at all during the eclipse.

Yes. Here's an ISS photo from the 2002 eclipse over the Indian ocean. This year, 2017, the ISS will see the moon's shadow on earth once, over southern Illinois, at 43.9% totality.

Well, I did just a bit more googling and found this article which does indeed show images of a shadow on the earth. Pretty cool.
