    Managed to catch both ISS and Discovery this afternoon as they  zipped 
    across the Sun.
    Less than half the size of the station , Discovery was very faint but just 
    visible.

    You'll need your Xray specs to see Discovery ! .....I suggest letting the 
    WMV play through a couple of times in full screen mode.
