    G'day Mates,
    some observers in Australia who don't mind getting up early in the morning 
    might be able to see Aft Skirt flares from the Hubble Space Telescope 
    (provided the preliminary HST timeline for Week 34 is followed).
    All times are UTC (which would make the date the following morning local 
    HST target Uranus:
    Port Hedland, WA,   23-AUG-05  21:50:00 UTC
    HST target NGC 1309:
    Moorie, NSW,   24-AUG-05  18:40:58  UTC
    Grafton, NSW,  24-AUG-05  18:41:17 UTC
    HST target 47 Tuc:
    Mount Isa, Qd,  25-AUG-05   20:17:25  UTC
    Dampier, WA,   25-AUG-05   21:53:30 UTC
    HST target NGC 1309:
    Perth, WA,   27-AUG-05   21:51:15 UTC 
    The HST targets given are what the HST is pointing at and NOT what observers 
    should look at! The places given are not exactly at the central line for the 
    flares but are close enough to hopefully see a bright flare. (The final one 
    passes a little to the North of Perth.)
