Znamya 2.5 seen in UK

The Znamya 2.5 experiment was visble here in UK tonight at orbit
approximately 1743 utc from overhead elevation approx 69 degrees. Seen by
myself, XYL Jane and daughter Sophie(12) and son0 James(9).

Two bright stars crossed together overhead from west to east. The lead star
- Znamya -  was significantly brighter than than the second, the Mir space
station. My estimation was as bright as Jupiter on a clear night. As
predicted from the Keplers, the stellar convoy crossed overhead in the dusk
towards the south east and to continue its experiment over continental
