    Hello all
    
    Before writing to the creator of Heavensat, I thought I might post this here first.
    
    Tonight I saw the ISS from my hometown Bruges, Belgium. Heavensat (Passes tab) predicted it would pass very near to Rigel (Beta Ori), to the south of Rigel. In Heavensat, with the option Star approaches, it also calculated a near pass of Rigel, but now north of the star. The distance between the two passes is about 25 arc min. Is used the same observing location and the same TLE for the calculations. Could this be an error in Heavensat 2.3.0?
    
    Kind greetings
