    Hi all
    
    I have an ISS Jupiter fly by scheduled for this evening.(And after 4 claer
    days..the cloud is moving in :O(((((((
    
    However hope springs eternal , and I am going to try and grab a few pics.
    The centre line is about 1km from me , I'm not however going to try and get
    on centre , having deceide to stay put and use a 230 arc minute FOV.
    This does not appear on Toms alert list as it is only about 15 mins after
    local sunset , and will effectively be in daylight.
    
    Assuming I can locate Jupiter in time , think I should be able to with a
    couple of minutes to spare , ...I would also like to see if Progress passes
    by.
    Another problem ...Progress will be incredibly dim in this light and very
    small , only about 6 arc seconds , which is at the very limit of this
    particular lans set-up
    
    Consequently , if anyone can give me an update on the predicted time
    separation for 2037 gmt  , I'd be grateful.
    
    Many thanks,
    
    John
