    That's got it, Dave. That is one quick little bugger. And it was nice of the clouds to stay just out of the way of the solar transit.

    Huh, weird. Thanks for the fix. It was working for me but then again, I was logged into Vimeo, I guess. Although, I don't have Vimeo Pro.
    I tried to edit my original post to use your links instead but it won't let me now., presumably because it now has comments.
    Regardless, thanks again for the work around and I'll post any new video links in the method that you found will work.

    thx!

    Thanks. I will be trying to capture moer as they occur near me. I will also be looking to capture some iridium flares. I'll post any of those I can get as well.

    Thanks. In case anyone is interested, here's the site that I used to know when the transits were going to happen.
    International Space Station Transit Finder

    All I had to do was be in the right place at the right time and hit record. I didn't even bother setting up a tracking tripod because if you are framed within a minute or so prior, it happens so fast that the movement is negligible.

    No fancy equipment, just my Nikon P900 and a tripod and be in the right place
