    This evening, December 14th I observed ISS at 14:43:30 UT,passing
    through Aquarius, near delta Aqu. I  can see station with about 3 dgr
    long tail. It was like a fan bending downwards. I make my observation in
    twilight and ISS was about mag 1. When station was going down to
    southeast it will be brighter even mag -2 but I canīt see it well
    because there was some trees.
    One orbit later , at 16:19 UT ,I didnīt see the tail. This time ISS was
    also mag 1 . When station goes to southsoutheast it disappears in Earth
