    Viewed 12/7/01  17.56.35 2d under Vega going due north ISS, intersecting
    Polaris at 17.57.45. I wanted to see STS-108 as a separate entity (and
    thought  it would happen with old info, I was hours behind with updated
    tle's), but I count this as a sighting of STS-108 even though they were
    docked at 15.03.30 EST . Cloudy with Vega in and out of visibility but
    watched ISS, just barely visible at times, then to north with clear skies.
    Saw ISS on 12/5/01 at Caph for the first time telescopically, with an eight
    inch Newtonian with a Dobsonian mount at 96X. To fast, need to try at 48X,
    but still fun, definite shape and size.
