    For you guys and gals in San Francisco:
    check out Zvezda friday morning 21 july, mag. -1.2 ! Almost as bright as Sirius.
    from SW to NE, from 05:19:04 to 05:32:56 (all local time PDT ). At 05:21:19 she
    is 87 high and mag -1.2 ! ... and almost smack on the Andromeda galaxy M31 !
    Unfortunately the sky is already quite bright, I guess you cannot see M31 anymore
    at that time.

    enjoy !
