    Hi all:
     Saw the Phobos-Grunt probe about 5:51pm AST (2151 UT) from the apartment
    roof. There were clouds about unfortunately but I did see it naked eye
    at about 3.5 mag estimated. It just went by with out any flaring and
    faded. It is supposed to get higher passes over us this week, but our weather
    is not looking good as usual. Did get a 15 sec exp of the pass tonight
    and put it on my facebook page.
    Lat:  N44d 39'
    Long: W63d 36'
    Place: Halifax,Nova Scotia,Canada
    Clear skies
