On a related note, has anyone checked to see if Shenzhou made a favourable
pass over AMOS during its brief mission?  I'm assuming (perhaps incorrectly)
that a sunlit pass at night is preferable for the Maui folks?  If so, a
cross-check of the weather at the time would be interesting.

<groundless speculation>
A check of the MHPCC status page (http://www.mhpcc.edu/status/status.html)
shows that one of their P2SC's ("Typhoon") is busy at work on
something...wonder if it's undoing turbulence effects on some nice high-res
imagery of Shenzou?  Not that we're likely to ever see it, of course...
