Dear Seesaters,

I saw NOSS 2-3 r last night, February 4, at an elevation of 
8 degrees in the north in thick cloud.
Here is a position accurate to 0.1 deg:
9602902267599020418092108  020  1214162   +4539    6  5
It was running 56s late on Mike McCants' elset:
1 23907U 96029B   99032.72649184  .00220000  00000-0  61726-3 0    03
2 23907  63.4356 312.2606 0020999  68.8308 291.1692 15.92738214    04

Earlier, Mir followed by Progress (separation 0.6s) were seen almost 
in the zenith at 17:44 UT through thick cirrus cloud.  I guess their 
magnitudes were approximately -1 and +1 respectively.
