    Hello everybody,
        Despite overnight rain, clouds in an inconvenient position and a
    bright Moon I just observed the passage of the separated ISS and
    STS-121. Observing at 5.40am local time, using the unaided eye from a
    suburban location in Newcastle, Australia both objects were bright and
    obvious with the shuttle trailing the space station by approximately 1
    degree (measured in the traditional way by using the width of the thumb
    with the arm extended).
