    On a shadow exit pass about 45 minutes before the time of writing I observed 
    the STS followed just under a minute later by the ISS.  The shuttle had a 
    long bright curved tail.
    I am looking into this further to see if it relates to any scheduled firing 
    etc (or could be a dump?)
    Further details to follow, checking to see if it correlates with any 
    scheduled event, but if anyone is aware of what this event was please let me 
    know.   (As it was early in the morning I had not been following the mission 
    at the time.)
