I never cease to be amazed at how useful and accurate the GSOC Satellite
Visibility page is. It makes most of the prediction programs i have on my
computer obsolete.
A quick check of the page showed a nice Mir pass this evening over
Sacramento, so i took my daughter outside to watch. Exactly on time, and at
the appointed azimuth and elevation, there it was! She was very excited (as
I was). It was a beautiful pass; challenging every other object in the sky
for the "brightest" prize. Mir disappeared in the west...heading for Canada.
We came back in and used the GSOC site to see where Mir was going...
If you have not used the German Space Operations Center site; do try it!
Don't worry, it is in english :-)
