    I got an alert from CalSky:
    Cosmos 2445 / 33438/  08 058A
    Crosses the disk of Sun. Separation=0.133  Position  Angle=134.7.  Transit 
    duration=0.38s
    Angular diameter=2.8"   cylindrical, 4.0m x 2.0m 
    Satellite at Azimuth=142.4 SE    Altitude= 34.1  Distance=331.6 km 
    In a clock-face concept, the  satellite will seem to move toward  9:33
    Angular  Velocity=73.9'/s
    
    Is is realistic to see this with a 80mm f/11 at  100x?
