    I watched parts of 5 consecutive passes of the sunlit ISS on 5/22/03.
    
    The local times of the maximum altitudes and those altitudes were: 22:31:58
    72°, 00:08:32  19°, 01:45:32  16°, 03:22:19  38°, and 04:58:22  27°. The
    first four were in the north and the last was in the south.
    
    The last pass was really beautiful. It was in the morning twilight and the
    robins were singing all around me.
