Upcoming transit of the Space Station across the disk of the Sun
About 1:20 PM on Monday afternoon.
If you have a PST or a solar filter, or even some welder's glass, you
can use the same precautions as for an eclipse to see the silhouette of he Space Station against the disk of the sun.
The map shows the ground track of the event, for the center of the shadow path.
At a distance of 350 km, and about a quarter degree, you will see some of it
even if you are as much as 3 km off track.
The other thing to keep in mind is that the orbital predictions for the ISS are
not very accurate. Wish we could do more.
Crossing the disk of the moon, of course, is a naked-eye event you don't need any
