    Based on predictions that Sue Worden sent to me (Thanks, Sue!), 
    it looks like *IF* the Space Shuttle launches on time (17:45 
    EST, 16:45 CST, 22:45 Dec 4 UTC) today, folks in Texas and 
    some other states (and maybe northern Mexico?) may have an 
    opportunity to see both in the sky at roughly the same time 
    early this evening on Endeavour's first orbit.  I don't know 
    if Endeavour predictions will be available on soon enough, but you can get ISS 
    predictions for this evening from there or various sources as 
    well as your prediction software.  Right now it appears that 
    ISS will be higher in the sky and in the lead, perhaps by less 
    than 30 seconds.   says the weather at the Cape looks good for 
    launch this evening.
