    At 17:22:50 UTC Feb.06 I happened to find ADEOS approaching beta UMa,
    exceptionally bright (about +2.0) moving in DIR=260° until it passed
    below beta 18:23:13 and became "invisible" at 1-power in slight haze.
    Predicted magnitude +4.0 at range 1240 km.
    Location (work) +59.5290°  +17.916°
