    Many may have already seen the excellent videos in a recent SCIENCE@NASA 
    article by Tony Phillips but just in case someone would otherwise miss it, 
    I'm taking the liberty of mentioning it here.  You can locate it at: 
    http://science.nasa.gov/headlines/y2007/23jan_ltps.htm?list47652
    
    Of particular interest is the video of the Orbcomm communications satellite 
    passing in front of the shaded earth-lit part of the waning crescent Moon on 
    Nov. 17, 2006. I wonder how high the moon was above the horizon at that time 
    of the transit?

    PS  As far as the article goes, I have been long interested in transient 
    lunar phenomena. If interested take a look:
