Thanks for the program Mike.  However, a slight modification may
be in order.   Assuming that NEAR may be visible without aid of
a solar panel flare, additional position/velocity data may be needed.

The powerpoint presentation That Craig mentioned suggests that closest
approach is at 07:25 UT on 23 Jan.   So data extending a suitable time
after closest approach should be of value to someone.
