    Good evening Art,
    
    The Progress ships usually get deorbited 3 or 4 hours after their undocking.
    So I don't think you will be able to see Progress M-59.

    Hi SeeSaters,
    
    ISS will be passing over here roughly 12 hours after the separation of
    Progress M59.
    
    I assume it will precede the ISS as it's slated for deorbit.  Correct?
    
    Would anyone care to hazard a guess about the separation between the two
    objects during the pass tonight?
