    ISS is in XPOP - it appears this probably occurred about 15 August- the
    Status Reports for 14 and 16 August show the change and the one from 15
    August does not give any information about it.  The transit video should
    give some assistance on this perhaps?
    Anyone noticed any changes in predicted mag as some observations indicated
    it may have occurred last time? - I do not have suitable opportunities to
    observe the ISS till the weekend our time.  (a predicted 5 degree altitude
    pass tomorrow is of no use here because there is virtually nowhere here
    where obstructions by hills can be avoided!)
    The information in the latest report on steps to be taken in the event of
    EPS BGA (Electric Power System/Beta Gimbal Angle) motor trips may be of
    interest as it refers to
    the implications of attitudes for power generation.
    (N.B Spaceref has incorrectly dated the 18 August report as 18 November but
    it is clear from the content that is it in fact current.)
