    A very bright " white " ISS just made a visible pass over the UK
    This was only a 36 degree elevation transit , so very little detail in the 
    images.
    
    However I am having difficulty determining the orientation and can best 
    describe it as the main truss earth  facing with very little reflection from 
    the new array...and the P6 array in total shadow.
    
    The almost potasium white appearance coming from the reflective quality of 
    the main truss and the new radiator.
    
    Be interesting to see how it looks on the next pass....again 36 degs , 
    provided the weather holds.
    
    John.
