Jeff -

When I was listening to the Shuttle STS-119 audio feed last night - March 16 (just before Midnight - Chicago time).  
The Shuttle performed a burn to "catch up" with the ISS.

The shuttle appeared to be about 20 minutes behind the ISS on the visible pass here last night -- before the burn.

Hi all!

Did the ISS perform a maneuver burn to avoid a possible collision with space 
junk?  The reason I ask is during the 0841z to 0850z pass I started to 
receive the downlink about 08:39:30.  About 1.5 minutes before the AOS was 
to occur.  I'm using 1 week old keps and the previous night pass was right 
on schedule.
