    A nice ISS/STS pass over an unsually clear and moonless night in wintertime
    Seattle WA USA at 19:05 PST.
    
    At max elev of 62 deg, mag was approx -1.5, obviously brighter than the +0.8
    for ISS alone predicted on heavens above. Passed only a couple degs below
    Jupiter (-2.2) and Saturn (+0.2). My wife who has excellent color vision saw
    it as slightly yellow-reddish. Venus also visible low in West at -4.5.
    Disappeared into the shadow shortly after max elevation.
