    Notes:
    -------
    
    (1) Still to come:
    
        USA160 rkt #26906 second pass
        DMSP B5D2-6 #21798
        NOSS 6(a) #14690
        DMSP 5D-2 S-14 #24753 second pass
        NOSS 3-3 r #28538
        USA 160(C) #26907
        USA 160 #26905
        #90032 - close to predicted time so has not moved
        NOSS 3-3(a) #28537
        NOSS 3-3(c) #28541
        Milstar 3 Cnt Rkt #25725 second pass
        NOSS 2-2 triplet
    
    (2) NOT seen - #90025 so has moved
    
    (3) First two satellites #23233 and #20344 tracked in bright twilight
        so had to use what stars available, sometimes quite far apart - ie
        about 0.5 deg max
    
    (4) Second position of #90033 query - very faint. Dont think its an
        artifact but if discordant chuck it out :-))
    
    (5) Several strays to report but nothing exciting.
    
    (6) Not a good night for geostationaries as moonlight was a problem.
    
    Cheers
    Greg
