    Hi all,
    About two hours ago I was some five miles west filming ISS transiting the
    sun ( 0932 gmt)
    It was a last minute decision as the sky was broken cloud , with a layer of
    thin cloud above that.
    However I set up at the coastal location , and hoped I would catch a bit of
    blue sky at the right time.
    Results can be seen here
    649 was nicely positioned and looked rather menacing as the station passed
    This was the first time I have used Peter Katreniaks time stamp facility in
    K3CCD Tools , and it worked a treat.
    The laptop was calibrated to the GPS just before the pass.My exact location
    was  N 53:26:18  W 03:03:46
    Hope you like the pics :O)
