    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!
