      ISS passed over at near zenith, visible from elev. 84.9 to 78.5 elevation. "Blazed" through scattered
    cirro-cumulus & thin cirrus overcast. Venus (-4.2), Vega (0.0) and Jupiter (-2.8) also visible.  I estimate ISS
    magnitude near the Jovian magnitude around -2.5 .
    
    Observed from 17:33:45 to 17:34:00 local time, Sun angle -9.1, or 51 minutes after sunset, trajectory SW to NE.
    
    appeared steady on this short observation.
