    Dear List,
    
    Thank you all who replied to my plea for information about the constancy
    of Mir's attitude.  I am still chasing down the many leads given.
    
    I have posted the Feb. 10, 2000 and Nov. 1, 2000 photos on my satphoto
    site:
    http://www.bullhammer.com/satphotos.htm  and I humbly submit them for
    any commentary.  I do not claim to be an expert on anything, I was just
    surprised by the results.  No, this is not a mistake, the photos really
    were taken months apart, just at a similar angle and direction.  
    
    There are also two possible interpretations of the photos, depending on
    the presence or absence of the freighters, I will attempt to determine
    the exact status of freighter location at the time each photo was taken,
    then I can nail down my best guess as to which blob of light is which
    part, and I will include a "sketch" of Mir showing my interpretation. I
    purchased a scale plastic model of Mir at the National Air and Space
    Museum (Washington, DC) gift shop a few months ago as an aid in photo
    interpretation... 
    
    Thanks to all for the help, and any clues to the specific freighter/s
    docking status on either date will be appreciated.
