    Folks,
    
          Beautiful photo opportunity with a local pass of ISS-STS within 0.3-degrees of Saturn tonight. However, I needed another 1 hr in RA further north-west in order to have the scope in
    line with the subject. They were both of similar visual magnitude. Visually, I could have sworn that the ISS-STS did eclipse Saturn as I think I saw a slight change in the intensity of the
    ringed planet at the predicted fly-by.
    
          Maybe next time on film.
    
    Anthony.
