    Hi Ron ,
    I'd agree with the ballooon theory , having seen  a couple of ISS transits
    recently I can certainly confirm that the station zips across the solar disk
    in less than a second , even on a full "crossing"....and anything much
    further out , 10,000km plus , would be invisible to all but the very large
    aperture scopes.
