    Hi Tom...
    
    This transit http://www.satcom.freeserve.co.uk/isstransit1.GIF  was captured
    with over 4 hours of sunlight to go , so I suppose it qualifies for a
    daylight event....or at least thats the way I see it.   ;O)
    
    A larger version is available here ...

    Full details are at http://www.satcom.freeserve.co.uk/isstrans.htm
    
    Hope this helps.
    
    Regards,
    
    John.
