    Atlantis will be docking to the Harmony PMA 2  port for the first time this 
    evening and could make for some interesting obs.
    The extra module means the shuttle is pushed a little further away from the 
    clutter  of the main truss so  will it appear
    brighter I wonder  ?
    In addition , ISS will have moved into "reverse" flight mode which usually 
    produces a huge flare
    from the docked Progress.
