    Despite a bright sky (sun just 6 degrees below the horizon),
    I managed to see the new Soyuz TM-33 (26955 = 01-048A) with
    10x50 binoculars passing in the north, some 20 degrees below
    Polaris.  Estimated magnitude (hard due to almost no stars
    being visible yet) about +3 (i.e. fainter than Polaris and
    gamma Aquilae but brighter than beta Aql).
    Clear and dark skies!
