Hi everyone,

As long as I was playing around with solar transits, I thought
I'd check for transits by the largest object in orbit:  Mir.  As
it turns out, there's a good one tomorrow morning (Fri.,
April 16) for southeastern Texas.  Here are some points
on the centerline:

9:02:45am CDT  27.4931N, 98.0223W
9:03:00am  28.2725N, 97.1590W
9:03:15am  29.0460N, 96.2944W
9:03:30am  29.8135N, 95.4272W

Portions of Corpus Christi and Houston are on the centerline.
