    This morning I observed the Mir appearing from the earth's shadow at 1129UT
    from in front of the Marriott Hotel in downtown Guatemala City. I am now
    back in Houston, but the pass showed Mir as still stable and of course,
    rather fast moving reaching 
    -2 magnitude at maximum. I had hoped to *attempt* observe the reentry
    process of STS-98 (in daylight) since the second KSC landing opportunity
    yesterday would have flown over the northern border of Guatemala and Mexico;
    these plans were thwarted by weather at KSC.
