I was out yesterday evening enjoying views of Venus, M45 using my telescope and with binoculars in a large horse pasture (1930-2100 EDT). The very bright, waxing gibbous Moon behind me to the east. The Moon is not pink :) Shortly after 2030 EDT, the ISS came by passing near M45 and Venus in Taurus, Orion, on to the SSE where Corvus and Virgo were. I could see the ISS very bright too in binoculars, perhaps near or just brighter than Betelgeuse in Orion. I viewed the Moon as well. Yup, the Moon was not pink :)
