    Following is a quick analysis of the input from several people that provided
    me with info from different programs. The programs used were: TheSky, Starry
    Night 2.1, Guide 8, STK 4.3 and SkyMap 6.6.
    
    Sun altitude: all within 0.1deg. or better for all programs
    Sun azimuth: all within 0.1deg. or better for all programs
    ISS altitude: all within 0.1deg. or better for all programs
    ISS azimuth: all within 0.1deg. except Starry Night which was about 1deg.
    different.
    ISS separation from the sun: three programs [TheSky, Starry Night 2.1 and
    Guide 8] within 0.1 deg. except Starry Night which was almost 1deg.
    different.
    
    Thanks for the assurance that I can know very close to where the ISS is
    going to be at any time!
