HRPO received from a friendly gentleman a tip about an ISS transit which Tom has confirmed with Peat's Heavens Above site.

From the viewpoint of one on HRPO property, the International Space Station will transit the Sun tomorrow at ~12:24:15pm CST. Any BRAS members who want to stop by with their equipment and attempt to capture this very brief event, come on out--we'll be here!

The clouds were not on our side. Tom, Amy and Briar attempted a rapid series of shots in hopes of catching the very quick transit of the ISS. Meanwhile, I had brought out the Sunspotter to view it optically. The clouds were covering most of the sky and during the important time span sure enough they were over the Sun. Oh, well.
