Thanks, Rob and James and all,  I shall set bells and whistles just in case 
this rain forest I live in allows me a look. I was properly chastised by my 
satellite-hunting son for not posting my co-ordinates last time. I shall do 
so this time.

Bearing in mind that a great viewing opportunity was missed over Long 
Island for lack of getting up early, I will do my best to see this water 
dump.  It will be my first one.   I may just climb onto to roof to afford a 
better view and always watch the ISS for as long as it is visible. Perhaps 
precise time can only be ascertained in hindsight.   However, I appreciate 
any precision available and my thanks for your responses!
