    hi all,
    could someone please whip up some approximate predictions for a visible pass 
    of downtown chicago, Illinois, USA for the STS 121 mission this evening?  I 
    haven't mastered yet plugging elements into STK or calsky or whatever, HA 
    hasn't updated yet, and I really want to demonstrate the pass to some folks 
    ( I will be in grant park enjoying a concert & fireworks.)
    my coordinates at the time will be roughly 41.8864N, 87.6062W
    I am in CDT, US central time, UTC-5.
    as long as the prediction is + or - 1 minute or so and I know which region 
    of the sky it will pass through,  I should be able to catch sight of  it...
    thanks in advance
    clear skies!
