    There were some high clouds in my southwest, so both
    STS 114 and ISS appeared about the same time high in
    the southwest.  The Shuttle appeared to be about
    1.5 magnitudes fainter than ISS during the entire pass.
    
    Predictions using STS 114 (Quicksat) intrinsic magnitude 0.0
    and ISS intrinsic magnitude -1.5.  Height and range in miles.

    This matches what I observed - a spectacular pass.
