Just saw a wonderful pass of STS ands ISS - ISS was trailing by about 34
seconds.I used these elements:
STS-88      
1 25549U 98069A   98348.33589634  .00002671  00000-0  33451-4 0   391
2 25549  51.5760  46.5188 0012787 238.8623  25.2647 15.59009731  1579
ISS
1 25544U 98067A   98347.84011585  .00011448  00000-0  15556-3 0  1178
2 25544  51.5918  49.0059 0009952 255.8308 104.1576 15.58067875  3698

They were VERY close or right on target.

They rose in NE, passed at 53 degrees elevation and set in the east -
shortly before sunrise. Shuttle was brighter except when ISS flared - it
was basically heading straight "for" the sun.
