    I saw the same pass!

    This is my first sighting of the ISS since the new gigantic solar arrays
    were installed.The station was yellowish in color,not red like other
    observers have noted,although I am observing against a rather bright
    sky.Telescopically viewing this object resulted in actually separating
    the solar arrays from the rest of the station!
