    On Saturday 24 February 2001 at about 18:20 UTC Mir and ISS were seen
    *simultaneously* in several parts of France and in Belgium. Weather in
    southern France was better than further north, so most observations
    were made in the south.
    As far as I know, this was the first such encounter (and also the last)
    which not only was a spectacular sight but had symbolic character as well:
    old Mir meets its successor, shortly before its demise.
