    IRS-P2 doesn't do bright flashes on every pass.  In fact
    I'd say it's fairly infrequent.  I believe it's usually
    when it's west of the zenith here but pretty high up in
    the sky.  Passes east of the zenith seem to be almost
    always pretty faint.
    Continuing cloudy evenings around here.  Fortunately got
    to see 2001 Q4 (NEAT) last week.  There's a very bright
    ISS pass tonight, so maybe it will be visible to some 
    extent through holes or thin clouds.
