    Hi all,
    I've been plugged into this wonderful network for a long time but have
    rarely submitted an observation. Tonight I did see Shenzhou-7 using
    Heavens Above. It was on track -- passing just south of Jupiter -- but
    about a half-minute earlier than the prediction. It was 3rd magnitude
    and moving quickly. I waited to see the rocket stage but nothing. I
    have a photo of the pass if anyone is interested. My question: did I
    see the rocket stage or the ship itself? Thanks for your help.
