<p>&nbsp;</p><p>You might recall a while back the Shuttle Astronauts swapped out a device on the ISS called the Early Ammonia Servicer. The then placed it in a lower orbit (using "hand Thrust") so it will eventually burn up in the atmosphere.</p><p>Well it is now visible at times as a satellite in the skies, and it's quite bright. For those of you who have set up access to the Heavens-Above page, they are now listing it. I have a pass at 7:15 PM tonight with it at mag +2.9, though I don't think it will be quite dark (or clear) enough to see it since it's at the Civil/Nautical twilight transition.</p><p>Tomorrow it will be +2.1 mag for me, that really quite bright.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Keep an eye out if you're interested!</p> <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p><font color="#000080"><em><font color="#000000">But the Krell forgot one thing John.
