    Hi all,
    
    
    About two hours ago I was some five miles west filming ISS transiting the
    sun ( 0932 gmt)
    It was a last minute decision as the sky was broken cloud , with a layer of
    thin cloud above that.
    However I set up at the coastal location , and hoped I would catch a bit of
    blue sky at the right time.
    
    Results can be seen here

    649 was nicely positioned and looked rather menacing as the station passed
    by.
    
    This was the first time I have used Peter Katreniaks time stamp facility in
    K3CCD Tools , and it worked a treat.
    The laptop was calibrated to the GPS just before the pass.My exact location
    was  N 53:26:18  W 03:03:46
    
    Hope you like the pics :O)
