    Hello Robert,
    
    clear skies tonight, naked eye obs: Saw the beautiful couple from 20:43
    until 20:47 UCT, in the beginning as bright as Venus, with culmination (az:
    10 N, h: 85) a lot brighter than our "female neighbor". No flaring
    though.
    
    Excuse my unscientific language, I have no special technical eqiupment and
    rely on a normal watch and my own eyes.
    
    Hope you have clear skies tomorrow over your three plus islands.

    Unfortunately as expected totally clouded out.
    
    S5 truss installation went according to plan, so should be a very bright
    ISS/STS  combo now, I wonder if flaring is a possibility?- something I was
    hoping I might have found out visually!
