    Not to mention that Cosmos 2406R is a bright flashing object!
    
    I have had a local report with no precise details of a good flashing pass
    south of Wellington city (about 10 km from here.)  This would likely have
    been a few weeks ago.  No time to check on further details of this just now.
    
    I have missed out on this so far owing to weather and to other commitments,
    and at present our opportunities are very limited with not very favourable
    passes mostly in shadow and at inconvenient times.
