    Observed HST this eve passing from west to east at above 30d elev. in the south at predicted mag 2.5;
01:32 to 01:35 UT;  Recent cold front has dried the humid summer air and the stars are crisp and bright.  As
Hubble neared Mars and passed a couple of degrees above it flared as if attempting to outshine the red planet
and came very close to doing so.  It keeps alive my hope that man will conquer space and even himself someday.
