    In fair to poor conditions just before dawn this morning at 1533 UTC (0433 
    local) the ISS  was extremely bright on approach, maybe as good as -6, had 
    the same effect as an Iridium flare of that magnitude though in the case of 
    the ISS it faded steadily rather than rapidly.  I lost it before culmination 
    owing to cloud but by that time it was down to a more normal mag of 
    around -1.  STS was round mag 1.
    The pass was a high one approaching from the northwest and heading into an 
    orbital sunrise.
