    A few nimutes north from Jeff, a friend and I were at the RMCC Observatory when it went over. Unfortunately, she was inside. As it brightened to better than Venus and zoomed across the sky from Lepus to nearly the Big Dipper, it was an amazing sight. I realized it couldn't be ISS because it had taken a similar path the night before, but I hadn't heard that STS launched. By far the nicest satellite view I've seen, and the fastest! It couldn't have been better placed, perfect balance of sulnlit bird and twilight.
    More of an amazing night to follow...
