That's no sunspot, it's the International Space Station (ISS). The ISS was approximately 291 miles (469 km) away from my position, traveling at 17,150mph (28,000kmph). The Sun transit took about half a second. When this was taken there were four NASA astronauts, one JAXA astronaut and two Roscosmos cosmonauts onboard. Shot with a NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR lens with a TC-14E II (1.4x) teleconverter and a black polymer solar filter.

Not only an amazing shot, but consider the perspective...

The ISS appears here is about as large as the Earth itself would be if directly measured against the Sun, Diameter per Diameter. . .
