    Hi folks:
    
    I thought I saw Mir through low level clouds as she sailed below the 
    old cresent Moon in the east. It was much brighter than the predicted 
    mag +2.7.  
    
    Twenty over minutes later, viewed Iridium 70 from a crowded bus stop. 
    Ir 70 put out a cloud-piercing flare -search light flare [predicted -8] 
    at 67 degree elevation. (sun was ~5.5 degree below horizon).  I bet no 
    one know what I was observing...
