launched sunday aug 19 at 14h49m UT.(hope I got the times right...correct me
if I'm wrong)

IN ORBIT UNTILL SEPT 3 when it will dock again with Mir to correct its
orbit. There are nice opportunities to observe this at my location and the
weather looks promissing.

interesting object to observe.  It is very nice to see it flashing untill
