A bit too early, still during daylight (04:43pm UT) but I've waited years to be able to image the ISS during a passage either in front of the Sun or Moon.

 

That's one out of 101 single frames of my captured video where the ISS can be seen during its less than 1s flyover.

UPDATE:

Animation added - 101 single images in that GIF-file, speed of the ISS down by the factor of 9 (!):
