I just saw STS74 on its predicted path and almost on time this morning.  It
was moving just below Alpha Hya at 0554UT with a maximum elevation of 30
degrees.  Maximum brightness was about magnitude +2.

There is always something else to see when watching space shuttles.  This
time I saw the newly launched Zenit booster(95-58B/23705) by coincidence
flashing with approximately 0.4s.  No need to say this is a wonderfull object.
