    Well, if you just want transits for one specific location, SkyMap
    already does this.  All-File search, lunar transit, 0.25 degree
    tolerance.  If you want transits that are reasonably close to your
    location, just loosen up the tolerance to a few degrees.  (SkyMap
    allows a tolerance of up to 5 degrees).  It won't show you the
    ground track of the transit, of course, but it will at least
    clue you in when something will be close.  --Rob
