    There was a question a ways back: will the ISS and MIR ever appear in the 
    same sky in one night? And I beleive the answer was no, they are on opposite 
    sides or earth, and whenever on is in the morning, the other is in the 
        Well, today, May 1 200, both MIR and ISS are in the evening, just 2 
    minutes apart! It seems unusual to me (are they gonna colide?!). However, I 
    suspect it to be from the 'lagging' of the ISS. It has dropped considerably. 
    (Feeew! They're at different heights!) 
        MIR just today entered its evening period. For the past 2 weeks, it was 
    morning. Tonight, it makes its pass at 21:41 EDT, then another in the morning 
    on May 2, then all evening for about 2 more weeks. The ISS has been in the 
    evening for a few weeks, and May 3 is the last. It enters morning May21. 
        But hey, tonights duo could be interesting for observers. Photos anyone? 
    Looks like it may be cloudy for me, though.
