Since I get the Digest version, I don't know yet if anyone else has reported
this article, but if not, this from Reuters today:

Mir Station Will Look Like Moon In New Experiment

"... 'an aluminum sheet which would be spread in space to reflect the sun's 
rays onto the earth.'

...'Next February, for a few days, people will be able to see a second 
small moon in the sky,' said Sergei Gromov, a spokesman for the Russian 
Energiya rocket corporation."

Something to look forward to.
