Does anyone know *what* that satellite flying along with STS was today?
Perhaps 700 meters behind and to the south of STS? 01:30 UTC June 10...

Fairly bright, tracked and photographed it with the 7" and 12" scopes here
in Boston... the smaller sat was perhaps a meter or two across and white...

No mention of it on the web? Mir followed by less than a minute after, I
know that"! :)
