    Hi All
    
    I saw ISS again on both passes as predicted by Heavens Above.
    Both were on time. The first was rather ordinary, appearing
    near the square of Pegasus and moving sharply to the East on 
    a downward track, soon lost behind the houses on the other side
    of my street. It was at 01:45 BST, 00:45 GMT
    
    The second pass at 03:20 BST (02:30 GMT) was a full sky pass.
    Just as ISS was passing by Altair, it flared *very* bright
    like an Iridium flare, and nearly as bright.
    
    Well, its cloudy now in Belfast, so no obs tonight.
