JUSTin from SpaceWeather.com:->DOUBLE FLYBY ALERT: Space shuttle Endeavour undocked from the International Space Station this morning (11/28/08), and the two spacecraft are now orbiting Earth in tandem. Endeavour is scheduled to land in Florida on Sunday, Nov. 30th. Between now and then, many sky watchers (especially those in Europe) will be able to see the shuttle and the space station cutting across the night sky together--a rare and beautiful "double flyby." Simple Satellite Tracker for ...ABQ zipcode area ....Elsewhere by zipcode.

SPECTACULAR CONJUNCTION: When the sun goes down tonight, step outside and look southwest. You'll see something very pretty: Venus and Jupiter beaming together through the twilight. The two closely-spaced planets are about to be joined by the slender crescent Moon for a spectacular three-way conjunction that arguably ranks as the best sky show of 2008.

Just a note that the chart on the flyby chart can be misleading to those who don't know that "magnitude" works something like decibels. In other words, the higher the number, the dimmer the satellite, star, what have you. In city limits I find it hard to see anything more than 1.0 magnitude, but usually anything in the negative range is spectacular.
