ISS sighting



This morning at 16:30Z (6:30 Hawaiian Time) the ISS rose
from the south to a direct overhead pass. The sky was clear
and the stars subdued by the coming dawn. The ISS had 
about the brightness of Venus as she rose in the sky. At about
75 degrees altitude a most brilliant blinding flash exploded.
It must have been caused by the solar panels momentarely
reflecting the Sun's rays in my direction. What a sight !
Can't wait to QSO with the crew!
Happy New Year to all! 
73, Peter, NH6VB. ALOHA.
