    Exceptionally good pass of ISS on 11th from my location-it passed 
    just below arcturus and I tracked it for a part of its pass using a 
    dobsonian mounted reflector-difficult to see any structure, (60* 
    magnification), but I am fairly sure I could see two short-bright-bars 
    (like an = sign) above the main structure which appeared like a 
    small sphere-I assumed that the "bars" were the solar panels, I 
    really wanted to do a report on lacrosse 3 but it was too close to 
    twighlight to locate decent reference stars
