    I woke up to see a hazy sky, I was a pecting cloudy sky.
    I check my predictions, and quickly setup as I had not much time.
    I watch the ISS pass by, then the soyuz rocket with my eye. I tried to get the soyuz rocket on
    video, trying to keep up with it manually. Oh well I observed it.
    I then aimed my video camera at Mizar, and waited for the soyuz spacecraft.
    And I was rewarded, with it passing near Mizar. 
    Nice bright satellite, glad I got to see it.
