    In a brilliantly clear dawn sky (Sun just 6 degrees below the horizon) I've
    just seen STS-101 followed two minutes later by the ISS, both reaching mag
    0.0 compared to Altair at 30 degrees elevation in the South.
    
    The Shuttle passed 10' above 57 Aql at 03:13:04.16 UT.  It's due to land in
    3 hours time.  The ISS passed 12' above xi Ser at 03:14:29.87 UT.
