    Partly cloudy, (weather poor for over ten days here) but did manage to
    observe 26881 low in the south.  I was using recently acquired 20x50's
    with a 2.5 to 3d FOV, large error factor as I could only guesstimate its
    passage below Mars, no other reference stars.

    ISS, running four and a half minutes late from:

    Better agreement with Kenneth Ernandes posted elset for STS-105, below,
    observed naked eye and ISS seemed a degree or two lower than prediction
    for sts-105 passing below and outside of Alpha Cepheus and n Cepheus.
