    i caught them coming out of shadow over my area... cygnus was closing from 200 
    meters to 30 meters during this time... too close for me to separate visually 
    with 10x50 binocs... but then they were also north of me about 55 degrees 
    elevation and moving further away...
    
    watching nasa tv as i type this, cygnus is just past their 30 meter hold point 
    and closing on iss... they are moving southeastward along the coast of saudi 
    arabia / yemen and the red sea...
    
    they just got "go for capture" so i'm going to watch that and then grab a little 
    more sleep ;)
