Season Greetings:

Observed Discovery and Hubble 28 minutes after separation.  Picked up the
pair in 10x50 binocs ~5 degrees in the SW.  Separation was easily seen
until both due south.  Discovery's mag increased (0.0 - 0.5?) to the point
of overwhelming the Hubble.  As they headed into the SE separation became
more visible until dropping into shadow.  NASA TV (in background) commented
the separation at that point was 900 feet.
