Tried to see the shuttle launch via the web but with no luck, all servers
too busy.
I thought the shuttle would be too low to see so I did not bother to look
for it. Instead I waited for Iridium 20 to flash by I saw 6 flashes at
zenith and 2 flashes as it went south of me.
Glad I stayed out the shuttle went by at aprox 23:27 BST with the tank
slightly to the north with an orange glow. The shuttle was aprox -1 max with
the tank about 2. I was really impressed. I can't wait for ISS now sp the
shuttle passes my latitude again.
