SOLAR TRANSIT: A photographer in France has caught China's experimental
space station, the Tiangong-1, passing directly in front of the sun.
The photo shows the winged spacecraft backlit by hot plasma as it flits
across the solar disk in the neighborhood of giant sunspot AR1476.
Check it out on today's edition of http://spaceweather.com.
TIANGONG-1 SIGHTINGS: The Tiangong-1 is much smaller than the
International Space Station. Nevertheless, it can be seen with the
naked eye shining in the night sky as brightly as the stars of the Big
Dipper. Download the Simple Flybys app for sighting opportunities in
