    I have several subscribers that should be along that transit path in England (and Ireland), including a few in the Liverpool area-
    whether or not they're also SeeSat-L subscribers, I don't know.
    I also have a lunar transit (sunlit & nighttime :-) predicted for that same orbit, 11 minutes earlier in South Carolina.  If the
    current atmospheric muck clears in time, it'll be the first transit I've seen since the nearly "accidental" one I observed in
    October 2001.
    As I recently discovered, by putting in the latitude & longitude of a point along the predicted transit path, it's easy to get
    CalSKY to generate a graphic of what the transit should look like- see
