    Finally the weather allowed me to observe my first (and,
    barring a delay in the landing) last pass of the Shenshou 6.
    It exited the earth's shadow and glided above Polaris appearing
    as bright as that star, then passed between the pointer stars
    alpha and beta UMa, at approximate magnitude 2.5 with no obvious
    variations in appearance.

    Clear and dark skies!
