In addition, many Americans have gone to these two schools for PhD work and successfully found postdocs in the US (I know some!). And, there are faculty members there that completed PhDs in the US so that if you work with these people, they will be known by their colleagues in the US when you apply to US PhD programs.
So, I think you should go where you would have a better fit, for your research and your personal life. I don't think there is an enough of a difference in "name recognition" between these two schools for that to be a factor. And I think some subfields of astronomy are better at one school than the other, so pick the one that fits your interests more!
