I think I saw a satellite transit the solar disk as I was observing, I thought it was a small sunspot but then saw it moving straight line

SSW-NNE as seen though my 80x eyepiece on my C8. It appeared as a small black dot and was not a plane as no contrail or

any disruption of the solar disk as I observed. Not a bird, went too straight and did not waver.

Was there any transits for me today of a satellite over the Sun?
