    Just seen a very low altitude pass of Progress M1-11 and ISS, Progress
    passing south of beta Corvus at 21:16:55 UTC at about 10 degrees altitude,
    about 22.5 minutes before ISS. The observation was made with 20 x 80
    binoculars. ISS was seen by naked eye at an elevation of only 8 degrees,
    disappearing behind the St. Peter Church just before it would have been
    entering into shadow atabout 21:39 UTC.
    An attempt to see the near-decay SL-4 rocket 28262 in deep twilight about
    20:44 failed, due to the combination of twilight and very low altitude pass
    I guess.
