    I did a ckeck this morning to see if he would get a transit of those two 
    satellite, well he does. Just as I thought, he gave the wrong time. I 
    assumed the times were universal, and not local. Just a suggestion, you tell 
    what time you use in your message, local on universal.
    
    I get the iss going across the moon at 3:12:12 UTC ( July 26 ).
    
    Oh by the way, the sun will be close to the horizon, and the iss will be lit 
    by the sun. So you can forget about watching it. Hard to see a sunlit iss on 
    a sunlit moon, even with the sky being dark, which it won't be.
    
    For the transit of seasat across the sun, it's at 8:49:41 UTC (July 24 ).
