    The big map at TsUP (Mission Control Moscow) shows that Progress M-61 is in
    orbit.
    
    A correction to my earlier comment - visibility of Progress looks as though it
    restricted to Latitudes BELOW about 35 degrees north but can be seen on both
    northbound and southbound passes. ISS is visible at higher latitudes due to its
    higher orbit.
