    We have a shuttle/ISS pass around 0707 UTC (1907 local) Wednesday about half 
    an hour before docking, subject of course to any variations caused by the 
    Ku-Band comms failure..
    
    This is a  similar pass to one I observed close to docking on a previous 
    mission:  in that case the shuttle was visible separately through binoculars 
    as they approached but I could not distinguish them as they receded.
    
    Visibility will be best for the Southern North Island  (which includes me) 
    and for the South Island.   Cloud may or may not be an issue at this 
    location, there is some doubt over this.
