    Hi all,
    
    On Friday UTC 026, the weather permitted nicely and we successfully tracked 
    ISS at 06:55 EST.  The max elevation was about 66 degrees and with the 
    Brent Bosharts SatTracker software (http://sattracker.hypermart.net/), we 
    resolved physical detail for the first time.  The solar panels were clearly 
    visible and revolved as the tracking took the vehicle through the flight 
    path.  The tracking performance was excellent.  I think we can even go to a 
    smaller FOV (currently 0.2 deg).  We recorded the entire pass on VHS 
    tape.  A shorter 10 second segment can be found at the following links.  I 
    have included both AVI and QuickTime formats.  However the QT format is 
    much smaller and is recommended if you have the viewer. The video clips are at:
