ISS solar transit – August 16, 2017

Scroll down to content

Another ISS transit over the Sun. This time at a better elevation, and a much larger apparent size of the ISS. A lot of luck for this transit, since only seconds after the event, some clouds rolled in and covered the Sun. The seeing was poor, but some nice structural details of the Station are visible. Also, a new sunspot groups is visible.

Equipment is mentioned on the images.
