    Hi Alexander M,
    I do plan to travel to whatever location I have to to observe the MIR controlled reentry.  If the reentry is planned in the reserved area, then I will fly to the nearest coastal town and charter a boat or aircraft that will take me to an area outside the reserved rectangle so that I can observe the reentry.  I do plan to image the reentry with several different types of sensors and if my results are successful, I will post them on my Web Site.  The controlled reentry is only four months away unless the Russians decide to keep it in orbit beyond the end of February.
    Thanks for your feedback.
