    Two orbits after Mike Foale spoke to  German students via the Ham Radio link
    and answered a number of their questions , the station passed over the UK ,
    just visible through thin cloud.
    Despite the conditions it was possible to grab about 100 useable images of
    the complex , albeit at long range.
    I have placed an image here :
    showing the increase in visible magnitude and gradual fade into shadow.
    These are raw frames , reduced in size by 50% .
    Examination of  single frames shows the possible position of  a  Progress at
    the nadir port .
