      Just saw a pass of ISS but it was not noted at the CalSky or
    Heavens Above site. ISS bright at Capella and passed just east of Mars 
    at it's
    end point. Reddish color also. Time I first saw it from the apartment 
    was about
    0646 UT .  The globe on HA did have the icon showing the pass over us, but
    it was not listed.
    For Aug. 1 these 2 sites have the following:
    Calsky has 5h15m21s local for the pass today
    HA has a pass at 21:40:43 (24h type clock time).
     Why the difference in times/dates/appearance from these site?
    Me: N44d 39' 
          W63d 36'
           height: 57 meters
     I would not have seen the pass as I was looking for an Iridium flare in 
    Cetus at 0640 UT
    but did not see it...clouds!
    Clear skies
