    Hi all,
    Just witnessed a nice Jupiter / ISS encounter a few minutes after sunset.
    I was about 800 m  off centre line and had toyed with imaging it with a
    small FOV of about 7.5 arc minutes.That would have been marginal....so I
    chickened out ( Sorry Arnold  ! ) and went for the safe bet.......
    Right on the dot 20:37:10 gmt the station went zipping through .FOV 30 arc
    Hopefully this will be of some use to Tom and Arnold to help calibrate their
    predictions.....but for artistic interpretation I'm afraid its  nul points !
    Ah well , a possible Lunar transit tomorrow..........must try harder !
