Since the ISS was due to make a daratic close approach to the Moon, and I had to get up at 4:30 t see it, ofcourse there were clouds everywhere. I did see the ISS travelleing towards the Moon, but I didn't get the closest approach, the hole the the cloud I had been following the ISS through went away at the critical moment (just like the solar eclipse in Cairns). I also saw the exit of the ISS.
Cloud have got more images but I angled the camera on my recolection that the ISS's orbit was flatter than it really was.
