    ;*************************************************
    date = monday 20080218
    time = 2130 hrs IST
    
    Visually (naked eye) observed 2 bright bodies, the
    brighter one following the leader by approx 10-20 deg.
    (We used no 'equipment', so all numericals reported
    here must be deemed crude.)
    
    Observation was close (both time and location in sky) to
    the following (CalSky? HeavensAbove?) predictions for ISS
    at our location:
    
    Body   IST    Mag   Az   Elev
    
    ISS   19:12  -0.1  339    0
           19:17  -3.0   49   20
           19:18  -2.9   79   17
    
    
    Question : Could the two bodies we saw be the ISS,
                followed by the (separated several hours ago)
                Shuttle?
