This morning at 03:19 UT I saw a nice pass of the shuttle and MIR.
Atlantis was in front and became very bright in the east, more then magnitude -1.
MIR followed 40.8 sec later (timed on passing the same star) and became magnitude
0 in the east.
It was the last oppurtunity to see the shuttle on this mission as it is due to land today.
