    I'm assuming it's moving in the same plane and at the same speed as Mir
    itself, as it was visible at the same spot for three seconds (before I lost
    Mir and only reaquired it 30 seconds later).
    In the image, Mir is about 15 arcseconds long and wide (it's 30x35 meters),
    but I don't know if we're looking at it and seeing it at maximum size.
