    Dear all,
    I have been looking for many years for an opportunity to see a Soyuz or 
    Progress craft in the vincinity of Mir and later the ISS.
    My lack of success in this mater can not be accounted to bad luck 
    anymore and I speculate that there are certain lighting/ground station 
    coverage rules in place for such dockings that exclude visibity from my 
    location in Germany (50 N, 9 E).
    Does anybody know more about these rules?
    Thanks in advance!
