    ** This is 40 feet from my normal COSPAR 8739 position (roughly east) but I
    figured that was unimportant. I can provide the coordinates if needed..
    A neat little trick... A friend alerted me to a great ISS pass while I was
    checking out a new video camera and looking at the path of Lacrosse 3.. I
    immediately knew that if I could see the ISS through the hole in my trees to
    the East, I could locate Lacrosse 40 minutes later.. The video was shot out
    my window...
    Now I know the azimuth of that hole in the trees.. :-))
