Hi all,

        If you cannot locate a decayer this evening you might try to
catch Mir and TRMM
as their nearly parallel trajectories converge near Beta Cetus around
00:25:50 to 00:26:00
02/13/99 with TRMM crossing Mir's path ahead by about 4 degrees.  TRMM
has been
near mag 2 from this locale.  From here the passes will be about 15
degrees above the SW horizon so I imagine those of you further west may
get a better view.

Clear skies
