    The way I would do it, an I am no expert, is to use Heavensat (or similar)
    and use the STAR APPROACH section... 
    In essence, view the track and find a star it will pass by, sit on that
    star, and watch it pass by.. My FOV is 1.98 x 1.48 degrees.. 
    Seldom do I not catch what I am aiming for, and when I do miss them, it is
    almost always because the phase angle is bad and the sat was not bright
    enough to be seen..
    In a private communication, I was warned these objects don't maneuver, so it
    was most likely just too dim in the twilight. Would like to use planar
    search techniques for others, so I'm glad for the responses or any other
    help there.
    I'll get you, 28054! And yer little dog too!
