    Hi all,
    This evening (28 Nov) at 17:50 UTC I filmed a very low pass of Fobos-Grunt from 
    My first view of it.
    It was at a very low elevation, rising due west and entering earth shadow at 
    less than 20 degrees altitude. Bright star in the footage is beta Oph at an 
    elevation of 13 degrees, FOV about 10 degrees wide.
    Camera: WATEC 902H + Canon EF 2.0/35mm lens, GPS SpriteBox time inserter.
