    I have been counting down the days, until the end of geo sat eclipse season.
    No more shadow to deal with, so I can wacth Intelsat 802 flash brightly, as I find it flashes around the time it was going into shadow, and so the best part of seeing was out because I couldn't see it.
    That and I can watch Intelsat 1R flare up, and not have to miss part of it getting bright, because of the shadow.
    While it's nice geo sat flare up around geo sat eclipse time, the time that occurs over is short compared to a flare of Intelsat 1R are XM-1 and XM-2 are milistar's, and Galaxy 11 once they move it back to where I can see it.
    Be nice to observe geo sat's all night long.
    Good riddace shadow.
