Had a great view of the Mir and STS 71 last night. It was viewed from the 
Tampa, Fla, USA area. The time was approx 7/5/95 0137 UTC. The leading 
object (which I think was Mir) was about 10 deg ahead of the shuttle. Mir 
seemed to be significantly brighter than the shuttle which was in a 
payload bay down attitude.
