    Thanks Ted!
    
    I see a pass for So Cal people tonight. Using Ted's search elements:
    
    USA 159 r
    1 77002U          01228.12618056  .00439299  00000-0  52085-3 0    00
    2 77002  28.6455 181.9913 0373000 183.5141 268.1500 15.41279729    05
    
    I see a pass across the S sky tonight. From Tustin it should reach 38
    deg in the S at 20:54 PDT +/- a few minutes. Crudely assuming a standard
    mag of 4 (because Ed Cannon's pass reached mag 2) this pass will reach
    about mag 2.8. I'd welcome better estimates of the standard mag.
    
    Skymap output:
    
     1/ 8/16 20:50:58 246 15  20:54:00 183 38  20:55:02 145 31   2.8
    77002 USA 159 r	Assuming standard mag of 4
    
    At least we can look tonight ...
    
    Best, Mark
