    Hi all,
    Thought I'd pass on the following non-technical, but charming, desciption of
    Mir's pass over an island near Fiji, from a local friend of mine:
    Bula Peter,
    Yes, we did saw Mir yesterday afternoon (just before sun
    set). The huge silver metallic thing like, flew right above Navini Island
    and unfortunately no one took pictures of it. It was very fast and even
    flying low (probably the height where aeroplane fly) with 3 big bright
    lights at the back (also giving out white smoke). We were very lucky to see
    Mir clearly (the sky above us was very clear) before it disappears through
    the clouds above Nadi. Arthur was still in the boat and saw it went past.
    But the boys saw it very clearly from where they were standing on the beach
    (even before it past Navini).
