    Hi All,
    Wow!  Just came in from watching a spectacular Space Shuttle
    fly-by from Torrance, CA.  Magnitude peaked at at least -4.
    At the brightest part of the pass, I'd say it was a tad
    brighter than Venus.
    11 minutes earlier, ISS was dim by comparison at -2.5 during
    a truly zenith flyby.  (STS-98 culminated in the NW less than
    60 degrees above the horizon).  The altitude difference was
    quite noticeable, as reflected by the significantly faster
    angular rate of the Shuttle.  --Rob
