    This morning I observed cosmos 44, as it passed near polaris.
    
    It was around mag 6, so brighter then the predicted mag 8 it was given as. So it was easy to see
    on the tv. Magnitude data was determined by size data, and not visual observational data,
    since the " d " after the number of 7.4 means that.

    It passes from the left of the screen, towards the numbers being displayed.
