    The de-orbit of STS-117 has been scrubbed for today owing to weather at the 
    landing site.
    We  have a visible pass commencing 0646 UTC preceded by ISS at 0644 (times 
    not to the exact second.)   Passes close to Alpha Crux so that should be a 
    good marker for timing separation..  Weather here is unstable but appears it 
    may be suitable.
    Unfortunately it may be too late to alert NZers  as it will be quite early 
    morning here but hopefully this might be of use to someone!
