It's got an excellent line-art color coded graphic of the Mir complex.

Any chance you could make some of these video images available to the rest
of us on some web site or FTP server?  Sounds fascinating!

I saw Mir tonight - no reindeer in front though.  Only get two passes at
this latitude and the haze made the second pass unsuitable.

Gee - should I be jealous of those of you at higher latitudes who get to
see Mir several times each evening instead of only once or twice?  ;-)
