Mind-blowing picture of ISS & shuttle transiting the sun
taken in September of this year by Thierry Legault of ESA

the page has a link to a HUGE 2850x2850 pixel jpeg - the shuttle and ISS are at the 9 o'clock position on the disc of the sun.

btw the full disk photo on the root page is about 1/4 size !
