    On the remote chance that anyone else is up at this ridiculous hour, 
    especially with the change to New Zealand Daylight Time  (in my case once 
    again because of the possibility of viewing SZ-7 rocket.)  in about an hour 
    the ISS and Shenzhou-7 will pass here on a visible pass in close proximity.
    It appears closest approach will be just after they reach here, but closest 
    visual will be around 1723 UTC (0623 NZDT.)
    Sun elevation around -7 so sky will be brightening.
    About to commence obs of SZ-7 r so no time to check implications for 
    Australia, where it will be even earlier in the morning.
    Conditions here partly cloudy but may allow some visibility.
