if anyone wants to see a great sight, get predictions from
Rob Matson or Randy John's program.   Look for an off-specular
angle of around 0.4 or less.  Also suggest looking at the 
magnitude plot on Randy's web page for a correlation of that
angle to magnitude.  This pass was just to the east of Altair.
