  Hello Seesaters! 
  
   I've observer Mir and Progress during the pass over Europe at
20:04-20:14 UTC (7Aug97). Much fainter Progress was 26.26 seconds behind Mir.
   Here are more details:
My coordinates: 52.14478 N, 21.06458 E  (Warsaw, Poland)
Mir rose at 20:04:16, peaked 20:09:29 at 76 degrees over horizon, then
entered shadow at 20:11:44, and finally set at 20:14:42. All times UTC.
I also heard a voice conversation and some packet transmission on 143.625.

  At the same time I noticed steady and bright Cosmos 744 r (#7969) that
peaked at 20:10:04 86 degrees.
