    transit, cloud covered it at the exact time.
    (b) though the transit would still have been interesting, it was not during
    the spacewalk which was aborted owing to problems with oxygen leakage from a
    (I have not calculated my exact coordinates at the time, and there seems to
    be no need to do so now in view of the unsuccessful observation.)
