    It was great to see ISS during an evening pass coming up from the SSW
    horizon, 1/29 PST = 1/30 UTC.
    
    SkyMap 6.5 predicted mag -3.1, but the magnitude was "only" about -1 on
    this low-phase-angle pass.
    
    I agree it's a tricky object to predict accurately: anisotropic, various
    orientations.
    
    Best, Mark
