    Thanks Dan.
    Yeah... I guess I need a pair of those glasses.
    I watched the docking at 56K on my PC... lucky you!
    I've checked my timepiece, which is right on,  and I expected it 240 to 60
    with elevation almost overhead, but it was not to be for me.
    Thanks again for the response.

    	Hello Bruce and all,
    	I put on my special lenses to beat the cloaking device  ;-) and saw
    the same pass
    	you refered to culminating at 04:16:56 EDT from my location in
    	Maximum mag was reached before culmination at -2. It passed nearly
    	and took my first picture of a sat. Will have to wait for the film
    to be processed
    	before seeing the result.
    	From your location, the ISS did indeed pass overhead at 04:15:20
    	azimuth 240 to 60. It came out of shadow at around 04:14:45 at about
    	degrees elevation.
    	Yesterday, I saw both modules beeing 1 min 44 sec apart pass under
    the Moon
    	just like in the beautiful pictures taken by Olivier Staiger
    	Zarya and Unity were the brightest at mag 0 and Zvezda was mag +1.
    	I saw the docking live on NASA TV with my newly installed C-band
    	dish. At last, I won't have to worry about net congestion and low
    quality images.
    	We could see the manoeuvring engines fire many times to slow Zarya
    	initial contact.
