ISS Transits of the Moon and the Sun

Are you interested in observing or imaging the International Space Station going across the Moon or the Sun?
Look no farther than the website transit-finder.com
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.
For the sun, ensure you have a safe solar filter for viewing or imaging!
