    Frits,
    
    On July 1st around 22 UT ISS was not visible in the Netherlands.
    It is visible in the evening this week.
    Watch wednesday for the shuttle launch. It should be visible
    about 30 min after launch.
    
    Haven't been able to ID the sat. It is not in my satfile.
    A bright one passed around that time, but to the north. :(
    
    Will try later to ID it
    
    Greetings and clear, dark skies
