I get shuttle status reports via ftp from (or is it just ask me again if you can't find them).
Anyway the report issues at 0h UT June 28.00d UT says Shuttle was (June
28.000 UT) 10,000 km from Mir and closing on Mir by 520km each "one and
half hour orbit".

Tonight I am expecting (June 28d 21h 38m UT) Mir followed just under 6
minutes later by Atlantis.

What about the website?
