    Derek,
    
    Everything has cleared up here for the second pass at 18:45 PST local time 
    (1:45UTC).
    
    Bob (Duluth),
    
    I should this one to be at mag -0.4, as my earlier was to be -2.6. This one 
    is coming in almost due West on me and will only hit an Alt of 17 deg. Still 
    should be descent. Jupiter will right above them as they disappear into 
    Earth's shadow.
    
    -Fred

    The clouds did not cooperate on this first pass tonight. The sky was clear
    enough south of its trajectory, but that wasn't good enough. I can Saturn,
    and a few other stars. I have a second chance at 18:45 PST.
    
    Derek, Did you get a view of the pass? How are the clouds in your location
    over the hill?
