    Was everyone else asleep this morning (July 23) or is this just considered
    another "I saw Mir again" report?
    I observed the ISS on time coming out of shadow near the  half moon at 08:16
    UTC on July 23. I suspect viewing was limited to mag 3 due to the high haze
    and moon but ISS showed up highly visible until the illumination waned.
    I thought I had missed Z somehow (predicted 08:22 UTC approx.) until it
    showed up out of the shadow at 08:25:50 UTC well close to 4 minutes later in
    a higher orbit based on the July 22 epoch from Heaven-Above. Z was slightly
    brighter than ISS (IMO) and steady.
    The last posted maneuver for Z was late Friday July 21. Did anyone else note
    a late arrival?
