Details:
When the ISS appears brighter then normally, probably this is happening: One of the big radiator panels in the mid of the station is flaring sunlight towards the observer. Such a radiator flare is visible in this image.

Taken with 10 inch Newtonian equatorial mount, tracked fully manually using 6x magnification and crosshair alignment. All CCD cam @ 2880 mm effective focal length.
