Did Anyone Else Get a Chance to See the ISS and STS-133 tonight?
I just came in from being outside to catch the ISS and STS-133 glide across the evening sky. They are supposed to make another pass tomorrow evening and that will be it; the last time I see Discovery in flight (kind of depressing).
Did you get an opportunity to see it and what are your thoughts?

I saw then from England at 7.25 pm. They were about 8 seconds (5 degrees) apart. I had assumed that the shuttle was behind the ISS, as detailed at this website: http://spaceflightnow.com/shuttle/sts133/status.ht... but the second object became noticeably brighter than the first as they moved away to the east. Maybe the Sun just happened to catch the underside of the shuttle.
