    Cold and splendid night after a long span of clouds and mist.
    Bright pass of ISS overhead . Followed 25 minutes later by Soyuz R/B in 
    Orion, slowly fading from almost invisible in binoculars to naked eye 
    visibility. And Soyuz capsule itself 4 minutes later at mag 1.5  . At the 
    same time Iridium 911 launched bright flashes in Cassiopeia and Perseus.
