I emailed Jose about my plan to gather up observations of this wonderful pair and try to determine a range of S – S - O (sun sat observer) phase angles with an eye towards prediction. Perhaps this can be  easier to derive from mirror angles? I don't use heavensat would it work better for me to send the data to you Vlad? 

I copied the entire list in case anyone has observations of their own to add to the database. I can say anecdotally that I usually try to look if the pair are between 40° and 60° up in the west about 1 hr after sunset.
