subject: 2009/03/20 observations of ISS_S1 radiator-damage
____________________________________________________

During a max 72 degree Southern pass of the ISS on March 20,observing and lighting angle
seemed optimal to observe the damage on one of the S1 radiators.Although I managed
to capture already better and sharper images of the radiators during more optimal passes,
the damage was often hidden behind shade.This particular observations succeeded well.

The astronauts photographed the radiators too,during yesterdays EVA-2.
