    Hello List
    
    Observed a memorable pass of the above last night from a city location.
    
    Timed perfectly with H-A prediction at 6:24 pm local time with visibility
    due to light pollution down to mag 2. Observer's Location: Addington (
    43.5500S, 172.6170E), New Zealand.
    Presuming STS 104 was leading  it was at mag -3 with ISS trailing by about
    15 seconds and slightly dimmer at about mag -1, (mags are estimates only).
    
    Great sight to see and I was able to point it out to some other people
    around at the time.
    
    Continued viewing for about 4 minutes until the leader, (STS 104?), faded
    out of view in the East.
    
    Regards - Steve
