    Great flare to -2 from ISS coming out of the SW sky this evening at about 
    6:05:00
    After the flare ISS decreased to a Magnitude of 3.0.I do in fact believe the 
    person
    that predicted that ISS will be dimmer at some point cuz of the huge solar 
    panels
    Casting shadows on the Main Modules.After the shadow period was over it 
    increased to a mag. of 0.1 at 35degrees.At about 6:0800pm it diminshed
    until it was finally gone into shadow below Polaris.
