    Observed both of the above in a perfect dusk sky  on a shadow entry 
    descending node pass at 0650Z.
    
    According to Spaceflightnow the STS is stationkeeping 70 miles behind the 
    ISS.  I estimate the ISS was at least  -2 mag and Atlantis around -1 
    maximum.
    
    I counted around 6 to 7 seconds difference using land-based points on hills 
    below the objects for markers.which was easily done with a maximum elevation 
    of the objects of around 16 degrees.
    
    Beautiful!
