    It cleared in time with a few scattered clouds to observe the ISS.
    At 18:40 UT I spotted it with naked eye in the still blue sky in the west.
    ISS brightened to about mag -6 in zenit before slowly getting dimmer.
    Quite a sight as the sky was still blue and only the brightest stars were 
    visible.
    It would be worth trying to spot the ISS in broad daylight.
    
    Greetings and clear skies,
