    Hi Thomas, I normally don’t do this, but in 2003 during the Mercury transit, 
    I had the rare event to capture 2 satellites transitting at 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
