Are you interested in observing or imaging the International Space Station going across the Moon or the Sun?
Look no farther than the website
For instance it shows a pass of the ISS over the moon on Sunday 2018 July 29th at 01:09:54 EDT for approx 1.3 seconds in a line running NW to SE from Plevna to Gananoque.
