Hello Everyone.

The skies in Maryland cleared in time to see a low elevation (12-13 deg max)
STS/Mir pass this evening.

The Mir passed Eps-Cass at 23:17:00 EDT (03:17:00UT).  It was somewhat
brighter than Beta-Cass. 

STS-91 passed Eps-Cass at 23:19:08 EDT (03:19:08UT) - 2 minutes 8 secondes
after Mir.  At first it appeared to be as bright as the Mir then increased in
brightness to about a +1 as it passed Beta-Cass.
