    hi all,
    Just observed a pass of a -2 ISS against a blue twilight sky at 62 deg maximum 
    elevation through holes in the cloud cover. Due to the weather a.o., this for me 
    was the first sighting since it was upgraded with new components.
    To my eye it was indeed orange-red, as some have commented here. The contrast 
    with the blue sky background  might have played a role in this - perhaps when 
    complety dark, it would have appeared more "white".
