    Hi all,
    Just had a very fine deep twilight pass of the Space Shuttle and ISS here in Leiden.
    Sun only 4 degrees under the horizon! Sky still bright blue!
    They moved a few degrees north of the crescent moon and became quite bright in 
    the south: no problem seeing both naked eye.
    The Shuttle was an estimated 5-6 degrees in front of the ISS.
