 But without my Windows tools I was utterly unsuccessfull in identifying
and posting my image. Heavens-Above did not show an object preceding the
ISS, "so you want to track satellites" facebook showed me posts, but no
field to post my text + image(s). And nova.astronometry.net did not accept
any input at the moment.
