    Hey All,
         With the declination of the sun between -10 and 0
    degrees declination for the next few weeks, would this
    not mean that if we were monitoring the disk of the
    sun, we would see geosats transiting the sun for the
    northern hemisphere? At my latitude (+33.0 deg) the
    geosats appear at around -5.25 deg declination and
    that is where the sun will be next Tuesday. Has anyone
    ever seen this before? That is, is worth watching for?
    
         Regards,
              Jeff Umbarger
