This video shows the International Space Station transiting the Sun in slow motion (4 times), on 20 April 2013, at 17h 35min 32sec. It was captured from Urbanizacion Paraiso, in the south tip of the Valmayor reservoir, in Valdemorillo, Madrid, Spain. The active sunspot group number 1726 is visible in the center of the image.

The ISS crossed the limb of the Sun in ~1.2sec. The video was taken with a Canon EOS 500 in video mode (25fps, full HD) through a Messier R102 Optical tube with a Baader solar filter.
