Just to beat a dead horse.....

Starshine, STS-96 and the ISS will exit eclipse at about 4:24 EDT (08:28 UTC) 
on 5 June.   For the Baltimore-Washington area they will pass above the 
Little Dipper - about 50 degrees above the horizon in the 4:26-4:27 EDT time 
frame.   It looks as though Starshine will lead the parade followed by STS-96 
(10 seconds later) and the ISS (about 35 seconds later). 

Cities from Atlanta to Boston will have an opportunity to view this pass.
