    Very clear sky, with the milky way well visible, which is unusual here in Leiden 
    town center.
    
    I also observed GOCE in twilight, but Murphy struck there when I tried to 
    photograph it. I was in a hurry: while checking passes in twilight, I found out 
    that a pass would commence in minutes, so I ran outside, slammed my camera on a 
    tripod and put a 2.0/35mm lens on it...but forgot to remove the lens cap :-s
    
    I saw GOCE visually, fast and reaching about mag. +2.5. But that darn lens cap...
