There is a transit of the ISS in front of the Sun just after noon on Wednesday, which should be visible from the area between the red lines in this map:(the blue line is the centre-line of the transit, where the ISS passes across the Sun's equator)
Even if the sky is clear, the pass takes less than a second, so don't blink or you'll miss it!
As far as I know, Dave Walker is the only BAS member to have captured images of such an event:

Please do take great care if you try to observe or image the Sun: use the proper filters to prevent damage to your equipment or eyes!
