Mir-Progress/Znamya Pass

Thu, 4 Feb 1999 19:44:30 EST

Hello everyone.

There was just enough of a break in the clouds to observe the last 45 seconds
of the Mir-Progress M40 pass, ending at 23:53:30 UTC.  The Mir led the
Progress by 4 seconds.   At an altitude of 13 degrees neither was visible at
1x.  The Mir was about a +3, Progress about a +4.5.   I saw no flashes from
the Progress.
