    Yes, the anticipatory elsets available a few days ago from the Web sites
    mentioned in my previous message were quite accurate in predicting the
    overflights earlier this morning.
    
    I timed Atlantis at 5.64 seconds ahead of ISS, very consistent with those
    elsets.
    
    Brightness of these objects is less predictable.  Atlantis was only mag
    3? when 53 degrees up.  ISS was mag 0?.
    
    Thanks for making predictions available to so many people.
    
    Cheers.
