    For any ISS fans, from about 2004 July 10.0 - July 13.5 UTC the
    (North) orbit pole of its orbit will be within 19 degrees of the
    solar direction meaning that it will be in continuous sunlight.
    This affords those in [at least] mid-northern latitudes a chance
    to see 5 or more consecutive passes of the space station each
    evening-to-morning period.
    
    Enjoy!
    
    Clear and dark skies!
