I didn't realize the astronauts were outside when it passed by.
That's cool!

Did anyone else manage to catch it?  I got the entire family
outside our house and my wife found it before it reached apogee.
We then watched it as it went up and then down behind the trees.
It was quite bright (magnitude -1.8 according to heavens-above.com)
and clearly visible in the twilight.
