    I only have time to submit a brief report but the ISS/STS were observed this 
    morning on a shadow exit pass in perfect conditions to the south of here as 
    they docked "over the South Pacific."
    Exit occurred at 17:58:16 UTC- not particularly bright not reaching more 
    than about mag 0 , was hard to pick out at first but then brightened a 
    Docking occurred at 1802 by which time it was passing over the horizon.
    The complexity of the complex (!) was visible to some degree with
