    Firstly - apologies to all who could not read my last posting. I 
    recently updated my mail client and the default setting appears to be 
    HTML. Hopefully this is now rectified and you can read this  message: 
    
    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.
