    Hello to the group:
    Wasn't carrying  my binoculars or a stop watch this morning to work, but
    when I step off the commuter train, I spotted Shenzhou 6 at 13:39UT passing
    through the center of Orion's belt as predicted. I estimated it at 2 to 3
    magnitude with it brightening to the NE, but lost it into a fog bank over
    the Willamette River. Storm system moving into region tonight, may have a
    few cloud breaks on Saturday or Sunday morning.
