    The ISS crossed in front of the sun disc as seen from the SatTrackCam Leiden 
    observatory this afternoon at 12:00:16 local time (11:00:16 UTC, 24 March).
    
    I used my modest & cheap Meade ETX-70 7 cm refractor to photograph it. Even with 
    such simple equipment (this is a 200,- telescope), ISS has a recognizable shape.
    
    Images can be seen here:
