    Hi all,
    Just observed Progress-M66 (09-006A) and some 17 minutes before that 09-023B. 
    Got both on photograph as well (positions for 09-023B will follow later).
    Progress-M66 made a nice pass through Leo at about mag. +3.5 to +4. 09-023B was 
    much brighter, an easy naked-eye object reaching mag. +2.5 in the zenith.
    Just after the 09-023B pass the ISS made a nice pass below Leo. I have it on 
    photograph together with two strays in the same image.
    Will post URL's of photo's tomorrow.
