    Since I had no timing equipment with me
    I estimated the distance between ISS and the Progress by counting.
    Mars was the reference point.
    ISS was about mag -2.8 and Progress +1.7 (like El Nath, beta Tau)
    I presumed that ISS was later than Heavens Above predicted.
    Did it get a boost from the Progress before they undocked?
