    hi all,
    Just observed Fobos-Grunt pass from Leiden, the Netherlands, at 16:08 UT in very 
    deep twilight with a maximum elevation of 45 degrees: sun 5 degrees below 
    horizon, Altair just visible.
    It was bright and fast, and showed no brightness variation other than what to be 
    expected from phase angle change. Around and after culmination it was definitely 
    brighter than Altair.
