Hello to all:

My name is Steve Miller. I am a chemist with an interest in
astronomy since 1985, who started watching satelites 18 months ago.
My special thanks go to Walter Nissen who introduced me to satelites
and has provided many predictions since then.

This morning I had a beautiful view of Discovery and Mir from my
home in Rockville, Maryland. I would guess that they were separated
by 15-30 seconds in time, with the second one passing through the
zenith at 11:37:11 UT (+/- 5 seconds). But, who was ahead of who?

I am happy to be a part of this group. I'm looking forward to
receiving info on satelites and their launches.

Sincerely,

Stephen Miller
