DescriptionThe International Space Station had an angular diameter of 37 arcseconds as it transited our sun this morning as seen from Kettle Cove State Park in Cape Elizabeth, Maine.
It was our good fortune that a solar active region was also in the picture.
It is great to think that we are beyond solar minimum.
