    It appears to be our turn- ISS "flies by" Jupiter on an excellent visible
    pass at 06:41 UTC on 6 May, just before shadow entry.
    The optimum location for an "eclipse/occult/transit" appears to be Kaikoura
    (a very tourist focussed location which is a base for whale watching and for
    "crayfish" aka lobster, but unfortunately not convenient for me to visit for
    this observation owing to a large stretch of water in between it and me!)
    The weather pattern is presently very unstable so the prospects for
    observation are quite uncertain at this stage.
