    An observer in Australia (38.283S, 149.217E) reports
    this position for a flaring geosat:
    2003-04-07 14:12:49 UTC; RA 13:46.4, Dec +6.34 (1950)
    Using Findsat and Mike's geo.tle file, the closest one 
    to the position was 111 seconds away, with another 113 
    seconds in the opposite direction.  If I understand 
    correctly, I think maybe the observer got some (as yet 
    unprocessed?) photography of it.
    More clouds here.
