    27681 2003-6-A Progress M-47 D/K is predicted to follow the ISS at this
    location by around 6 seconds tonight April 27  at 19:19:26 and 19:19:20
    local respectively (UTC +12)  on an almost identical path.
    It is also predicted to follow at around 9 seconds at 18:28:29 and 18:28:20
    respectively tomorrow April 28.
    Docking of Soyuz TMA-2  is due at 17:58 tomorrow local (0558 UTC.)  Are
    there any implications of the above which may affect docking and
    manoeuvring- especially if there are any delays etc in docking?  (For
    tonight our time TMA-2 lags by around 18 minutes.)
    Predictions are from Calsky but Heavens-Above gives similar results.
    (Heavens-Above does not yet have Soyuz TMA-2 so have taken this up with the
    site owner as I am hoping there will be some obs to enter - in my case if
    the clouds go away!)
