    Pretty nice pass of Soyuz TMA-1 here.  Passed a fraction of a 
    degree below Polaris and was about the same magnitude as that 
    star (+2) or possibly slightly fainter.  Range was about 477 
    km.  Didn't have the presence of mind to click stopwatch at
    that moment.
    
    Another night with 14 one-power objects seen from the middle
    of town, outside of the building where I work.  Of course we 
    want quality more than quantity, but it's very nice and lots
    of fun to see so many under such mediocre conditions.
