We got really lucky and have mostly clear sky tonight!  I just saw
Soyuz TM-27 Rk (25147, 98-4B), very bright, very fast-moving, 
flash-flash-flash-skip -- but the pattern changed as it moved on 
across the sky.  A few minutes later, STS-89, very bright.  Then 
Mir, followed closely by Progress!  Now I've got to go back 
outside to try to see Soyuz TM-27 itself, and a few others.
