Today was a relatively low pass toward the northern horizon, the maximum
magnitude +2.9 was expected, however, and even with the strong twilight and
some thin cirrus estimated maximum magnitude very close to +2. Maximum
brightness, and further, shortly after leaving the shade, and then slow and
gradual decline of brightness, to lose just under the polar star.
Today if I've got a photograph, which at least serve to make it a point of
maximum brightness, or close to maximum brightness (until shot in the
first, pass a few seconds obviously any more than I let it go because I did
not expect to see it so low to the northwest).
