    We saw it here in Newcastle Wally. If it makes you feel any better it was 
    brilliant as it passed between Alpa and Beta Centauri and then went just 
    above Antares, changed to a blood red coal and gradually dimmed out. At 
    zenith it was as bright as Jupiter but smaller. Jupiter was in light cloud. 
    Thanks for the tip.  Regards,  Col.
