    subject: Progress M-04M observations june 24.
    Observed last night 2 passes of Progress M-04M between 2 favorable
    ISS passes. (So there's no way to get some sleep before all high
    passes are over).
    First Progress pass was a 68 SSE. This was the brightest pass 
    appearing below mag 2.0. The second one was at 73 N at mag 2.4. 
    I captured this pass with the telescope in fairly steady air.
    Results later) Had little regret that I didn't choose for the
    SSE pass as I had overseen that this was the nicest (brightes) one.
    Captured both ISS passes (80N and 89 SSW) with telescope as well.
    Also captured 57 NNE pass of UARS. Even at this moderate altitude,
    shape with structure of this big sat is easy to capture, as first 
    frame-inspections suggest. (My best images of UARS so far are these
