    Earlier this morning we saw a lovely pass of the recently-undocked
    Discovery and ISS  as they entered sunlight at approximate altitude/
    azimuth 20 deg/340 deg at about 09:25.1 UTC (Monday 2001 March 19).
    The shuttle, which was some 1-1/2 degrees ahead of the ISS, was the
    dimmer object, being at about +2 magnitude at shadow exit whereas
    the ISS was at approximately magnitude zero.
    A pretty sight.
    Clear and dark skies!
