    Hi all,
    The past hour I observed ISS pass at mag. -2 almost through the zenith.
    Then 10 minutes later Progress-M62 followed and spectacularly flared to mag. -2 
    in Andromeda.
    And 15 minutes after that Space Shuttle Atlantis STS-122 made a nice pass at 
    mag. -1, entering into shadow just under the zenith.
    I have them all on photograph, including the Progress flare. Will post the 
    pictures later tonight, I still have some observations to do before I can start 
    to empty the Ixus camera.
