I couldnt see anything tonight due to clouds, however I had a good observation
last night of not only MIR, but apparently the Progress ship they had cut loose
on friday.  The object was trailing MIR about 20 seconds behind, and since the
shuttle had already landed, and the new russian team had already docked, I am
guessing what I saw was the Progress supply ship.  Anybody else see this?
