    I was wondering where the Progress was in relation to ISS.  Ahead or behind?
    I understood it was "parked" until JSC reopened, but didn't catch where.
    Hello Gregory and list,
    At the time I'm writing this message (03:00 UTC on the 15th), the Progress
    is about 5200 km behind ISS or 11 min 24 sec in time. Without maneuvers, it
    is closing in at about 90 km aech hour. Docking is scheduled for Wednesday
    at 18:43 UTC.
