    The latest status report states that in fact there was a slight overburn 
    resulting in the orbit being raised by 8.9 km: delta-V was 5.2 m/s instead 
    of the projected 5.0
    The purpose of the burn is to prepare for the next Progress, and the 
    trajectory is reported to be nominal.
    I observed a pass shortly after the burn. , There appeared to be little or 
    no deviation from the expected track post-burn so I was not surprised to 
    learn that it had been successful.   Has there been any major deviation, it 
    would have been reported to the list immediately!
