    Hi all,
    Observed the ISS naked eye at 16:43 UTC while the sun was only 1 degree under 
    the horizon. It was ridiculously easy even with the thin cirrus present.
    Failed to see the Shuttle naked eye, perhaps the two were two close and/or the 
    cirrus was of influence here.
    Tomorrow I will, (re-)try an attempt to film it, as I have a pass with the sun 
    at -4 degrees altitude then.
