    There are plenty of times ISS and MIR are in the same sky. In fact, I've
    seen them almost at the same time. A couple of weeks ago (sorry for not
    being exact) I saw a great morning pass by both at the same time. ISS
    was first, but MIR was shortly behind. Facing northeast, I could shift
    my eyes to see ISS travel NW to SE and then, without turning my head,
    shift my eyes to see MIR S to N. I could not quite see them both at the
    same time with out shifting my eyes, but it was very cool.
