    Its magnitude was already about 0 when I noticed it low in the west.
    Its color was striking, being very red, as expected. Max. magn. was
    about -2 before entering the earth shadow before culmination. But
    still very red. Even when it entered the shadow it stayed very red
    until it disappeared after about 20 seconds.
    So I am still awaiting a transit in which it can be almost opposite to the sun.
