    After a day of miserably windy and rainy weather, the skies
    cleared just in time for us to see Atlantis and ISS make a
    lovely pass from about 40deg above the northern horizon towards
    the east. At culmination, the two were about 5-6 degs apart
    with the shuttle at approximately -2 mag and ISS perhaps -4
    (although as they and the moon were the only objects we could
    see in a still-bright sky, the estimates are of necessity
    most crude).
    Later (at about 20:09 EDT = Oct 17/00:09 UTC), we hope to see
    them again, this time low (~ 24 deg) in the SW.
    A pretty sight!
    Clear and dark skies!
