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
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.
