‘Double Solar Transit’ of Mercury & the ISS in Front of the Sun

You might be thinking you already saw those high-res SDO-captures of Mercury passing in front of the sun. Alas this is similar but very different. French photographer Thierry Legault travelled to the US and managed to captur a remarkable video – and subsequent composite images – during last month’s Mercury transit that shows, in less than a second, the International Space Station passing in front of the sun as well:

Thierry lists the rig for his capture as a “Takahashi FSQ-106ED refractor at f/10, Coronado SM90 H-alpha filter, IDS UI-3370 4 MP video camera.” Nice!

The complete video also caught something else pretty remarkable. Watch:
