    Hi YK,
    
    Very sorry to hear you got washed out w.r.t. the Mir
    reentry (made all the worse by the fact that you could
    have observed it from Fiji, though under strong twilight).
    Was it due to the fact that the Progress burn turned out
    to be a little "hotter" than expected, bringing down Mir
    at a slightly sharper angle of attack?  This would have
    put your aircraft position a bit too far downrange...
    
    Condolences,
    Rob
