    Hi Ron and List,
    
    I want to thank Ron Lee for his dedication in attempting to
    observe a satellite transit of the sun, and congratulate him
    on his success!  If I'm not mistaken, he's only the second
    person (the first being Ron Dantowitz) to successfully,
    deliberately, observe a satellite transiting the sun.  (In
    both cases, the satellite in question was ISS).  As Ron has
    demonstrated, persistence and mobility are the key factors
    in successfully pulling off such a feat.  Now, can it be
    repeated with a different (large) satellite?
    
    Best,
    Rob
