    Derek,
    
    I'm soooo jealous! I just made the trek to Spokane to start My Life version 2.0 in my new position. And Imissed the ISS passover!I have to re-calculate my heavens-above long/lat for this area to view the next days passes. This means I missed the only visible pass for this location! drats! 
    
    Spokane Coordinates:47.6590 N, 117.4250 W 
    
    oh well . . .
    -Fred

    Just saw the 51 degree pass of the ISS from the NW to the SE..
    
    And in the SE it looked liked a welder's arc.. Bright blue white and an easy -7..
    
    Can these solar panel flares be predicted??
    
    By far the best pass I have ever seen of the ISS, and not just because it is clear after 4.74 inches of rain over the last week..
    
    :-))
