Finally, a bright Discovery pass

We just saw a nice bright pass of STS103 (+Hubble). At 23:26.6 UTC
as it passed Fomalhaut it equaled its 1st magnitude brightness and by one
minute later, it was as bright as zero-magnitude Vega. Why so bright this
evening compared to previous nights? (I guess being so far north of the
orbital plane doesn't really give us a right to complain :) )

Merry Christmas to All!

Clear and dark skies!
