    Thanks for that Kevin.
    
    The latest information is that the module has successfully inflated and the
    solar panels are deployed.
    
    Regards,

    I think it shouldn't be hard to hard to see, in a pair of 10 by 50
    binoculars.
    
    I don't think it will, be easily seen with just the eye, unless you have a
    nice dark sky, ie away
    from city lights.
    
    I could be wrong, personally I don't like to guess at magnitude of objects.
    I prefer to observe
    them, and get data on there magnitude.
    
    If the clouds go away, then before I head to toronto on friday morning, I'll
    hope to target it
    with the video system. Then I tell just how bright it will be. 
    
    Otherwise I'll be in Toronto to attend a funeral on friday. So in that case,
    I'll have to bring my
    Binoculars along, and computer to plot where it will be.
