    JPL havent been able to give an accurate estimate 
    of magnitude - originally it was expected to be around 
    mag +7.5 at max.  Then the orientation of the spacecraft and
    hence the three large solar panels changed and JPL
    expected the magnitude to drop to about +8.5 when 
    it entered shadow south of Cape Town. The local
    observatory was planning to do a webcast but it seems
    this has been cancelled due to US departments cut-backs
    that were involved with the webcast so all that will be
    coming from this part of the world might be a few
    "pretty" pictures if basically ordinary cameras can
    record that faint. I can go that faint with no problem
    but  I basically rate it as a "non-event" so not particularly 
    interested or excited about it but will probably do it
    anyway :-))
