    Subject: Shadowed sat transiting the lit Moon
    On reading George Roberts' reply to Ramon van der Hilst on the possibility
    of seeing a geo transiting the Sun, I decided to put forward a questing long
    lingering in my mind:
    Why can I see a lit satellite (even naked eye) and cannot capture the same
    shadowed satellite transiting the lit Moon with my 5inch scope?
