    Hi everyone...
    Back on October 12   ISS/Atlantis produced an unexpectedly bright pass over
    the UK
    In some parts of the country the flare seemed to be in excess of mag -6.
    I have now produced a simple animation of the sequence showing the increase
    in brightness from SW to SSE , as seen from my location.
    (Equipment Meade LX90 8 inch telescope/webcam)
    To view ( no special sofware required) simply got to

    and click the    "ISS/STS flare sequence"  block , half way down the page.
    Hope you like it.
