    It appears that the ISS / Venus transit path for June 8 is now certain to a
    resolution of a few kilometers.
    
    For Michael Gill, who originally inquired about the possibility of observing
    simultaneous transits of the ISS and Venus, the good news is that the latest
    prediction indicates a travel distance of only 60 km SE of Thessaloniki, Greece,
    where the distance to the ISS at the time of its transit will be 418 km / 260 mi
    (61 elevation).
