This morning over head pass happened in London between 7:12am – 7:19am at mag -3.3, went all the way up to 87° of elevation.
As ISS was rising from western direction, solar panels were facing toward me, reflecting lots of sunlight (left hand photo). But as ISS got above me, panels kept following the Sun’s position, therefore facing away from me (right hand photo).
Absolutely happy with the result.
