    Below message apparently did not make it through to the list, so I now
    resend it. Apologies if you did happen to receive it twice - Marco
    In June & July I spent a few nights walking with my camera & tripod through
    the town of Leiden, to try to catch some bright Iridium flares & the series
    of favorable ISS passes around the third week of July on photo. For those
    interested, some of the results can now be seen at url:
    Besides ISS & Iridium over (a.o.) the old Leiden Observatory, there is also
    a picture of a zenith-pass of Lacrosse 4 (this picture was taken out of my
    window, simply by lying the camera flat in the window-frame). These are
    scans of the printed color slides, not scans of the slides directly.
    I discovered that this is actually a very nice kind of 'urban
    astronomy'.   :-)
