Here's a nice photo taken from the Netherlands yesterday by Marco Langbroek showing the International Space Station transiting the Sun. What was the observer's actual position? He provides the time in UT but there are multiple images combined into one, so we will have an elongated error ellipse for this fix. How long? What is the accuracy of the fix in the perpendicular direction?
