    You should be OK as they would not change the ISS orbit until after docking. 
    I'm looking forward to a double transit for my own location as well. In fact 
    during the final approach of Discovery to the ISS on 28-JUL-05 there will be 
    a number of such solar transit passes on consecutive orbits visible from 
    various places in Europe.
