    I once saw six consecutive passes of Mir.  The first and last passes
    were in light strong enough to easily read a newspaper.  I had to use
    binoculars to see it and the AM pass could only be found because it
    passed near Jupiter and I had marked the position of Jupiter before
    dawn relative to some landmarks.
