    This evening at 20:12 UT my wife and I saw MIR making a 58 degrees pass.
    We were sitting outside infront of our boat at this nice warm summerevening.
    It was just dark enough, but there was some high clouds. The moon
    had a halo around it and only a few stars were visible.
    Mir was about mag 1 and it looked like there was a somewhat dimmer light
    beside it. I rushed inside to get my binoculars. There was definately an
    sat beside MIR. It was somewhat difficu;lt to see due to the clouds
    Has the Progress undocked? or was it an optical illusion caused by the
    Greetings and clear, dark skies
