    The first time I saw a Shuttle and its ET from the UK was 1983 Nov 28 when a work colleague and I watched Columbia about twenty minutes after lift off on the STS-9 mission.

    We were standing at a window of an office building in Lincoln and saw it pass to our north, above the towers of Lincoln Cathedral. Both were very bright but the tank was the brighter, slightly lower and in front.

    At the time, I reckoned it had passed overhead of Perth, Scotland.
