    Hi Thomas, I normally don’t do this, but in 2003 during the Mercury transit, I had the rare event to capture 2 satellites transittingat the same time the sun. This is no dust or other artifact, also no sunspots. I have a video of it.but have to go back into the archive and upload it. I will let you know when the video is available.Here is an image showing Mercury and the 2 satellites: Very obvious was the distortion of the small sat images in front of the sun caused by the bad seeing in the daily sun-heat,during the transit. In some parts of the traject, sometimes one of the 2 satellites even blew up until almost invisibility! Best regards,Ralf Vandebergh  Other than ISS and shuttle Sun crossing imaging, I am unable to find 
    links to images and movies of smaller Sun crossing sats.
    Any links appreciated and I am thanking you in advance.
