    We can also deduce that given the Sun's great distance, and Hubble's
    nearness, the Sun must be a great deal larger than Hubble.  Time to apply
    for a grant...

    Thomas, I have taken a passage of the HST in front of the Sun in December
    2007 from Florida:
    The HST is visible on 4 images of the series and the trajectory is
    consistent with the calculations of Calsky.
    Few satellites have this size, furthermore satellites that are not in low
    orbit, for example geostationary ones, cannot be photographed in front of
    the Sun because their angular size is much too low (the geostationary
    satellites are smaller than 0.05 arcsec).

    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.
