    You are right!  Light pollution at my site has gotton so bad, that Orion
    is now near invisible.  I mistook Jupiter and Saturn for bright stars of
    Orion.
    
    Well, I made observations on UT 04-15-2001 (first clear sky in more than
    a week).
    
    00:57:54 - No flare observed from Iridium 38.
    
    01:09:05 - Saw Lacrosse *4* for the first time.  Was reddish-orange. 
    Wasn't this launched somewhat "recently"?
    
    01:21:45 - Saw the Cosmos 1833 Rocket.
    
    01:32:12 - Saw the Cosmos 1743 Rocket.
    
    01:41:33 - Saw Cosmos 1515.
    
    Thanks to the Russians, I had a good observation session.
