    My gut feeling is, "yes" it is brighter than I've recalled in the past.
    I haven't observed the ISS for over a month and this evening (21:05 local ,
    01:05 UTC) with a not so totally dark sky it appeared significantly brighter
    (mag -4?) on the descent along with a marvelous flare to around -6?.
    Perhaps the northern latitudes are seeing greater illumination for this time
    of the season. Any comments from those in the southern latitudes?
