    Hi Ted --
    I think you may have meant to say 22-arc SECONDS.  A separation of 22  arc 
    minutes would have
    been nearly twice the distance of Mizar and Alcor (in the Big Dipper) and  
    would have 
    been easy to split both with 25 x 100 binoculars and even with the unaided  
    And while waiting for the ISS/Shuttle to show up, Venus and the  crescent
    Moon certainly made for a lovely "celestial tableau," didn't they?
