    Crude obs, but these are our notes:
    19 Nov 08,  roughly 23:56 UT pass showed a small dim object immediately 
    behind, perhaps 20 minutes of arc, the complex in 8x42 bins from our 
    20 Nov 08, roughly 00:22 UT pass showed a similar object, this time 
    roughly 0.5 - 1.0 degrees ahead of the complex.  Seen in 30, 50 & 70mm 
    Two other reports from Denton & Keller, Texas, USA on Cloudy Nights this 
    evening both indicate an object apparently "ahead" of the ISS/STS 
    Uncertainty as to exact times & magnitudes exist on our part since an 
    ISS/STS pass does not normally instill "methodical" observational prep, 
    but is rather a great "gawk" for the family.
