Some chap caught a stunning image of the partial solar eclipse yesterday - and managed to catch the international space station transiting the solar disk! It only took 0.86 seconds to cross the disk of the sun:Link to Photo

Ties in nicely with the thread running on Stargazing live - they did a feature on observing the sun. Tho its probably a reflection on the times and on my synical nature, the word "Photoshop" came to mind.
Mine too Nick to be honest - though modern software can predict the location of the ISS from any point on Earth (have a look at Heavensabove.com) - I would like to think its genuine!!
Yes I'm sure it is kosha, if the can predict to the second an eclipse decades in the future (as discussed last night on Stargazzing) they can also predict the exact time of the orbit of the sace station, but i'm still a synical old b******
Checked the website given and it does give detailed times of when the ISS crosses the Sun - and it does so frequently if in Oman where the picture was taken.
Can't backdate it though to check if it was there yesterday morning but seems likely.
