    My Quicksat predictions with OIG elements agreed with -- and both seemed to be okay.  But
    the conditions weren't very good; cirrus around, 
    22-degree halo around the Moon, but planets and a 
    number of stars were visible, including whatever's 
    near Mars right now.  STS-107 wasn't very bright (+2?
    at best), and I was only able to see it for about 25-30 
    seconds, moving from SSE to SE.  (I first saw it at 
    12:35:53 and also clicked when it went somewhat near a 
    +3[?] star at about 12:36:19.)  Tomorrow should be an 
    good pass, but the weather is predicted to be overcast.
