    Time of observation  5:13:43 secs UTC ( Apr 2 )
    Position near 15 hour 9 min R.A  -6 deg 39 min Dec
    
    I made an observation of the PAS 1R geo sat.
    
    Using the following orbital element
    
    PAS 1R
    1 26608U 00072A   02079.94130788 -.00000274  00000-0  00000+0 0  2939
    2 26608   0.0180 354.4991 0000429 321.3661 156.2908  1.00270296  4973
    
    And comparing it's passage to skymap , using a line it formed with two 
    bright stars.
    
    I determined that the sat is approx 37 seconds fast.
    
    Currently easy to spot in my 70 mm refractor.
