    Seen here also, easily naked eye at 10:22 UT. It was unfortunately too low in the east for me on the previous pass mentioned by the East Coasters to see the two closer together, but it was still a spectacular sight. A large debris cloud from a Texas thunderstorm had blown in, and nearly covered the sky except for the Big Dipper area low in the NNW. Here, ISS and Endeavour passed low, at about mag -1 and +2, separated by 134 seconds at an appulse of Alpha Ursa Majoris. Excellent end to a windy night.
