Hello When I synchronize to nist-gov my computer seems to go satellites with
a lag of about 30 seconds. This again happen to the ISS which in
principle should
have no problems.
However, I leave the next picture, the anti-flare, very moved, the ISS with
a magnitude of between -4 and -5 (the only noticeable among many cirrus).
HeavenSat forecast indicates a magnitude of -0.9 only at that time.
Given cirrus can deceive, ISS appeared on the horizon directly with a
magnitude of -2, stayed for about 30 seconds, and then apparently fell to 0
until the moment that makes the flare between -4 and -5 . Finally he
continued more or less constant with magnitude 0 until it disappeared.
These flares of the ISS so close to the horizon will have observed the only
2 or 3 times. Usually short, I do not think more than 10 seconds (today only
2 or 3 seconds maximum). By the way, I leave the angle of the mirrors of the
ISS and the Soyuz accompanying:
Soyuz 32.7º 342.5º
ISS     32.5º 342.3º
Coordinates: 36.8389º -2.4498, 30 m (Almería)
