    The following information from NASA also gives information on the event:
    
    http://www.nasa.gov//home/hqnews/2004/sep/HQ_n04136_genesis_update.html
    
    (thanks Calsky for the link to this page.)
    
    As the rendezvous time corresponds to our early morning hours just before
    dawn (though it does not take place in this region)  I would be interested
    in  predictions for times and magnitude estimations for  passes (if any)  in
    this vicinity before or shortly after the time of the event.
