    Darin Koch, a member of the Austin Astronomical Society (a
    local amateur astronomy club), got a neat video of the 
    Hubble Space Telescope transiting Orion's belt -- followed 
    later by a "Hubble flare", when it briefly brightened a few 
    magnitudes.  This was on April 2, 2005 (local time; April 3 
    UTC), from Canyon of the Eagles park, Texas.  It's a 
    Quicktime movie about 1.3 Mb:

    This was at an informal star party at the society's dark-sky
    site.
