    Just a few hours after the latest Soyuz launched I got a quick glimpse of 
    ISS during a low elevation pass.

    The station is 650 km downrange , approx 30 degrees elevation.
    
    (Apologies for using Imagevenue , my ISP (Orange) is acting up again.)
    
    I also imaged UARS a few minutes later.Although it was difficult to make out 
    any specific detail , the body of the satellite
    looked decidedly copper in colour.
