Even with rather bright skies with high cirrus clouds the ISS/Shuttle link-up 
was beautiful this evening, and lived up to its 0.6 magnitude prediction at our 
home near Bell and 7th St . It rose in the SW and entered the Earth's shadow 37 
degrees up in the West.   It's really awe inspiring to think that there are ten 
people up there in that tiny speck of light.  Thanks go to Jack Jones for 
giving us the heads-up.  More passes are visible from Phoenix in the next few 
days.   See http://www.heavens-above.com.  Enter your coordinates. Central 
phoenix is:  -112.08 (W) longitude,  and +35.45 latitude.  Enter the AZ time 
zone, and request ISS passes.
