    Hi all,
    More people besides Leo and me here have seen the unusual brightness of ISS 
    during its ascending phase at 40 degrees in the west yesterday evening.
    Koen Miskotte and Jaap van 't Leven, two notable meteor observers, observing 
    from Ermelo in the center of the country estimated it at -5, then going back to 
    -2, and slightly increasing to -3 in the zenith. This is a quite similar 
    description to what I saw.
