    Hi All,
    
    The Mir transit west of Boston will happen in about
    30 minutes (~14:47 EST) -- alas, I guess no one will
    be watching for it.  The next transit pass 90 minutes
    later cuts NW to SE across Montana, SW North Dakota,
    South Dakota, Iowa, southern Illinois, the southwest
    tip of Indiana, Kentucky, eastern Tennessee, the
    southwest tip of North Carolina, and along the
    length of the Georgia-South Carolina border.
    
    The final U.S. pass for Tuesday starts on the northern
    Oregon coast at 14:43 PST, cuts across northeast
    Nevada, central Utah (well south of Provo), extremely
    close to Four Corners (favoring the Colorado corner),
    and then corner-to-corner across New Mexico (Albuquerque
    and Roswell are very close to the transit line).  The
    line crosses into Texas at 16:48 CST, passing just south
    of Odessa.  It cuts southwest of San Antonio a little
    over a minute later and heads into the Gulf of Mexico
    just south of Corpus Christi near Baffin Bay.
    
    Best,
    Rob
