ISS Transit Prediction Java Applet was created by michaeloconnell
This is a really cool piece of software.
It allows the user to find out when the ISS will transit the sun, moon, or any of the brighter planets. What's more, you can then open the results in Google Earth and see the exact line of where the transit occurs.

I've been doing a bit of work so that the output can be plotted into google earth. Results soon hopefully.

Over the next few days, the ISS can be seen transiting across Saturn twice from Dublin.
