Magnificent view of the ISS and Space Shuttle Atlantis over Mossel Bay, South Africa this evening at 18h29 SAST

Once again I was treated to a magnificent view of the ISS passing over Mossel Bay this evening at 18h29 SAST.  I was able to view the station for most of the pass which started to the North West and moved South East until it finally disappeared in a red glow as the sun's last beams reflected off the station.  Unfortunately I did not have a good pair of binoculars but it is better than viewing the station with the naked eye.  The following chart depicts the orbital track for Mossel Bay at the time of the 18h29 pass.
