    I see I will even have a more favorable opportunity this evening. This time
    it's closest distance will be 304 km, that's considerably closer then the
    ISS can get.
    Hopefully seeing will be favorable. Also, I will have a chance to capture a
    most favorable pass of Progress M-06M the last day before its re-entry.
