    Sounds perfect, as I realized it would cross Jupiter, so I watched, then
    turned my head to see the time display on the TV, which stayed on the 12h
    44m 13s for a long time, so the 1.5 seconds seems perfect..
    Thanks.. Too bad it wasn't a Classified object..

    Iridium 22 (97043E / 24907) passed within 0.01 deg arc and 1.5 s time.
    Direction of travel seems about right.
