    As seems to be quite the fashion these days.........I have a stalker
    
    Her name is Morning Cloud  , and with alarming regularity she appears , from
    no-where , each time I try to image ISS
    This morning  , true to form , she drifted in just before the pass and
    settled in the southern sky...........the rest of the sky was crystal clear 
    !
    After the pass , she crept away......
    
    I'm sure , drifting on the breeze I could hear Wordsworths words....
    
    " I wandered lonely as a cloud That floats on high o'er vales and hills"
    
    OK I'm not going mad....at least I dont think so , but the continual hurdles 
    the weather keeps throwing my way does tend to send a fella
    just a little loopy !  :O)
    
    As for ISS , it quickly acquired the predicted brightness (in cloud )  , 
    then faded  into shadow just as swiftly.
    Of note was the fact that  , again , the main "glow" came from the truss 
    section.
    
    Unfortunately I am still unable to access my webpage , so I have placed the 
    animation here.....

    Note  the P3/4 truss section and the heavy shadow cast across the complex by 
    the array.
    
    If anyone has any problems with Speedyshare , please mail me direct.
    
    Thanks,
