    I made a small correction to that page- I realized I'd made a sign error, so
    that apparently, Tomás was only (by my best fiduciary effort) 12 meters from
    what was probably the CalSKY predicted ISS / Venus transit path (based upon the
    OIG TLE that would have been available at the time).
    
    Arnold Barmettler has indicated that most Slovakian maps currently in use are
    based upon a projection that represents a cylindrical or conic best-fit to the
    Earth's surface in Slovakia, so without a GPS measurement of Tomás' location to
    work from, it's not possible to come to a definite conclusion as to the relative
    accuracy of the OIG and MCC TLEs in this particular case.
