Late report here, since I left for NH soon after viewing the pass.
The ISS/STS came into view right on NASA's schedule, in a cloudy sky, with hopeful open areas that seemed to be in the right place for viewing. Naked eye, there appeared to be only one object. Having watched NASA TV until the last possible moment before heading outside, I knew that the separation of the vehicles was only about 200-250 feet, so I checked with my 10x50 binoculars, and a smaller object was disctinctly visible leading a larger object, looking for all the world like a moving double star! Separation appeared to be just a few arc seconds, more like two dissimilar points of light nearly attached together.
A quick glance over my shoulder revealed that the ISS might pass within 15-20 degrees from the Venus/Luna conjunction (which was gorgeous, by the way!!). I had my wife's digital camera, and with it set in the highest ISO position, I hand-shot several photos of the 'triple conjunction' as the ISS flew past, and actually succeeded in getting a very grainy shot showing all three objects (four actually: ISS, STS, Luna, Venus) in one photo. The ISS/STS pair is nearly lost in the noise of the background, and I have not had time to see if I can process some of the noise out of it. If I succeed, I'll post it. Otherwise, I'm sure that the ISS pair will not be visible in any downloads. As Matt noted, they brightened as the sun caught the solar panels, and then I lost them in the neighbor's trees, seeing glimpses of them almost to the horizon, flitting between branches.
However, it is always a thrill to see real spacecraft flying over your house with ten human beings aboard, out there trying to develop our 'space legs' so that we can finally embark on our next great human expansion. It is a great time to be alive.
