    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 (, 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:
    some additional notes and links can be found at: for the main index
    Best Regards
