    Despite a bright sky, we saw the Shenzhou III module
    (27408 = 02-014C) as it passed through Canis Major.
    Using binoculars, at about 2002 April 01/23:59.8 UTC,
    we estimate its apparent magnitude as about 4-4.4,
    corresponding to a standard magnitude of about +5
    (or a quicksat intrinsic magnitude of about 3.5-4).
    Clear and dark skies!
