    Saw STS-110 twice tonight (April 9).
    First was at 1905UT in a bright sky: no fixes possible.
    Second was at 2036: this time I was able to follow it
    with binoculars into eclipse, and at 203704.8 was visible
    by its own lights, mag 8 steady. at 250km distance
    (RA=844.2, dec=19.26).
