    As mentioned earlier, the ISS will shortly (and briefly) be in continuous
    sunlight, affording many the chance for an "ISS marathon" (many consecutive
    visible passes in a single evening-morning period).
    
    Based on TLE from:
    
    http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/realdata/sightings/SSapplications/Post/JavaSSOP/orbit/ISS/SVPOST.html
    
    it will be continuously lit from approximately 2005 June 29.5 (UTC) through
    July 02.9 .
    
    Clear and dark skies!
