Just saw the International Space Station go overhead, early evening (22:15 NZ time). Very bright, about as bright as Venus just after sunset, maybe more, while almost directly above for about 30 degrees passage of the sky right above, then fading as it dropped horizon-wards over the Rimutakas. Could just make out shape to it, in that it was not a point source, but was obviously elongate with projections.
