I unfortunately was clouded out for the MAG -7 flare 
predicted for 39.75N -75.31E.  However, I was able to
catch the pass of MIR in the north-western sky.  The 
GSOC prediction was very accurate for a novice like

I have terrible light pollution here and MIR was brighter
than any of the stars that it passed.  In fact I think there
are only 3 or 4 stars I could see as MIR went from the
northwest to the north.
