    This morning, despite some scattered fog and haze, we saw the ISS
    and the new Progress M1-3 supply ship ...
    
    25544 = 98-067A = ISS
    2000 08 08/08:03.6 UTC: V=+0.5 (brighter than Deneb, fainter than Vega)
    2000 08 08/08:04.5 UTC: V=+1.3 (i.e. = Deneb)
    
    Despite the recent addition of Zvezda, it didn't seem any brighter than
    before (I realize that, depending on attitude, it can appear considerably
    brighter or fainter).
    
    
    26461 = 00-044A = Progress M1-3
    2000 08 08/08:15.2 UTC: V=+2.0 (perhaps a tad dimmer than beta Aurigae's 1.9)
    
    
    Clear and dark skies!
