    Just had a high pass off ISS, at 77 degrees in SE maximum
    elevation , on an ascending path ( SW-NE),according to heavens-above.com 
    max elev at 18 55 50 UT,
    Maximum steady brightness was -1.5 rather than the -0.5 predicted by 
    heavens-above, colour slightly reddish not as obvious as on the N-S path
    a fortnight ago. a double flare observed about elevation 70 degrees
    elevation , after maximum elevation, to mag -3,-4 for a second or two.
    Sorry not timed. I would be interested to know if this was same surface
    as rob matson has already found for Ed cannon's observation.
    By chance have another high pass in the evening twilite in 15.5 hours time.
