    Russell Eberst and I just (21:30 UTC) saw STS-105 and its external tank
    low in the SSW from here in Edinburgh as they headed into eclipse. The
    tank appeared about mag 0.5 and distinctly reddish while the STS was mag
    -1 and about one degree above and leading. No outgassing clouds were
    obvious.
    
    The ISS was glimpsed rising into cloud about 5 minutes later.
