    Spaceflight now reports, that the space shuttle will be up there longer:)

    So it will not undock from the ISS until Aug 20. That night there's a local star party, and so in
    addition to the ISS passing near Jupiter, I'll get to see the shuttle also pass near jupiter.
    
    If I look at the orbital data right, it seems the ISS and shuttle will be seperated by a few
    degree's. Not real close it seems, but still seen together, I'll take that.
    
    I used the stuff at
    
    http://spaceflight1.nasa.gov/realdata/elements/
    
    To see what would happen.
    
    So I am correct in my thinking, are did I make a goof.
