    The ISS passed L->R below Polaris about 15 deg above the horizon at 0:32 UTC, 
    20 April.  STS-100 made virtually the same pass 33 minutes later.  
    
    Both objects were visible at 1x - the ISS at about a +1mag, the shuttle at a 
    0 mag.
    
    For the next few days there will be visible evening passes in the NE USA if 
    the weather cooperates.
    
    Iridium 77 (with a "?") flared to a predicted -4 mag at 0:42:30 UTC.  No 
    secondary flare was observed for the next 90 seconds.  
    
    Cheers,
