    No list of numbers today!
    
    After what seems like weeks of rain here in England I woke at 5.44am to
    a clear dawn sky.  STS-106 and ISS were due at 5.47am so I rushed
    outside without any equipment.  The Shuttle passed below Rigel, about
    the same magnitude as the star, followed about 40 seconds later by the
    ISS half a magnitude fainter.
    
    The Shuttle was still visible when it set near Regulus and Mars, but the
    ISS had faded from view well by then.
    
    A great sight!
    
    David.
