    Last week there were some oppertunities to do observations.
    On Jan 6, 11 and 13 the evenings were crispy clear, but cold.
    Also on the 15th and 16th.
    
    Probably saw MIR for the last time before it is deorbited. It made
    a 20 degrees elevation pass in the southwest on Jan 13 at 17:32 UT.
    It was S, mag 2.
