    28049 2003-45-G Shenzhou 5 OM is on the way to decay - Decay Watch has it on
    28 May (thanks Alan.)
    provides some background.
    I have good prospects for observation of this satellite with an inclination
    of near 42 degrees, weather permitting of course.  Unfortunately recent
    passes have been clouded out  (as have most other satellite passes.)
    Unfortunately it is the time of year when such weather is very likely (and
    it seems likely will cloud out my potential first GP-B observation in just
    under an hour.)
    It appears at least some parts of USA will also be in a position to observe
    Shenzhou 5 OM- for example by chance when checking something else I happened
    to find that Columbus, Ohio has some good passes in the next few days.
    I would appreciate any updates or observations when available.
