What a beautiful and bright (-3.5) pass of STS-128 and ISS trailing about 2 seconds behind over Chicago tonight!

The ISS solar panels were turned "edge on" earlier today before undocking of STS-128 .. 
and this provided a rare and bright (~ -7) ISS "flash" that was like the Iridium flash observations!

Only 6 more shuttle flights, so these visible dual sighting opportunities will soon be part of history!
