  • Next message: Don Horton: "Most Memorable MIR Sighting"

    This is my first posting.  Unfortunately it is of my last view of Mir.  
    I was able to go to the top of our mountain and see an unobstructed view of 
    this evenings pass.   (35.8N    83.3W) As predicted at 00:27:38 UTC or 7:27 
    EST. This pass was a mag. 1.2 or brighter.  With a nice view of the fading 
    I was able to watch this last pass, with my 10 year old son.  He spends many 
    hours nightly watching for satellites. We live in a remote area of east 
    Tennessee, offering us very dark skies.
    We have enjoyed Mir several hundred times and will miss it's passes.
    Thank You to the people of the former USSR.
