In a message dated 97-06-20 00:36:49 EDT, you write:

<< Noted a 10 second -1 mag glint of an object in Mir's orbit plane beginning
at 01:57:22 UTC. Mir crossed nearly the same location at 02:00:20 UTC, 2m 58
sec later. Both appeared to be traveling at the same rate of speed. >>

I'm not sure what that object was, but I observed this pass of Mir and either
this object was not visible from my location  or I went outside just too
late.  Mir by itself was fantastic though, probably close to mag -1, it was
the only thing that shined through a thin layer of clouds.
