    Hi all.
    Just under an hour ago , at 1227 gmt , I was lucky enough to be right on the
    centre line for a solar transit by ISS.
    The station was nearly 900 kilometres downrange , weather conditions here ,
    broken cloud , winds gusting 50 mph plus.
    Fortunately , a break in the cloud just at the right time allowed me to
    capture the transit as ISS shot straight through Sunspot group 551 !
    Result for broad band users can be seen here,,,, on my webpage , or here :   , which is a
    direct link to the gif animation ( 1.8 mb)
    I hope to get a smaller size file up and running shortly at :
    (By following the "WirralCam" link , in the left frame of the animation you
    can also see just what the weather conditions are like here at present )
    Best wishes,
