    We previously reported the second burn by the Progress booster as over the mouth of the Persian Gulf, this is
    incorrect, that should read the Gulf of Aden  Regarding the final burns these appear to be nearer to Northern
    Algeria as opposed to over the Mediterranean.
    It appears that the first and third burns will occur just after dawn in the local time zones.  The second
    burn appears to be observable at just before dawn local.  Hopefully observers in that area will get
    a good look, Yemen & Somalia.
    So as not to clutter up the list with these notes further updates will be available at our Mir Watch page.
    These updates will include Lat/Long info on the burn events as well as proximity to population centers.
