    Our latest pictures of the ISS taken on 12th and 15th October are now
    available on the webpages shown below. They show the ISS in XVV flight mode
    with only one of the main panels brightly illuminated.
    Since it seems unlikely that any part of the station could cast a shadow
    onto the whole of one main panel we think that the two panels are rotated at
    different angles - hence the one which is edge on appears very dark but can
    just be seen.
