    Here's the video of Atlantis crossing the sun this afternoon.
    Not very impressive I'm afraid as the shuttle presented a very small target 
    ( 12 arc seconds ) and was further down the disk than predicted.As a 
    consequence , you can just see it track bottom left , coming in at cluster 
    904 ( it should have been quite well north of the two groups 904 and 
    909)........... 909 is "just" visible.
