Any images/movies of sun crossers? ( Other than ISS-shuttle)

    I have been attempting to observe sun crossers using video and have not 
    had much luck so far. I think this is due to the type of telescope I am 
    using which is filtered for hydrogen-alpha which makes a grayish colored 
    solar disk. I think I need a white light filter for better contrast. In 
    any case, I am recording the sun full time so I can keep trying to 
    capture these particular sat passes.
    
    In the meantime I cannot find any sun crosser observations other than 
    ISS or shuttle images.  Can anyone point to references on sun crossers 
    and are there images or movies anywhere?
    
    Thank you in advance.
