Like Jay Respler I'm very grateful to Vladimir Agapov for posting (February 5) news of the separation of Progress M-33, 96-66A, from Mir, 86-17A. I had my first views of a Progress from Colorado Springs on Friday evening and Sunday evening. Progress was about 2 mags fainter than Mir. On 1997 February 8 at 01:04 UT, Progress was about 22s behind Mir. On 1997 February 10 at 02:20 UT, Progress was about 49s behind Mir. David Brierley.
