    On Dec 20, I was able to observe superbird a, flash nicely.
    I observed bright flashes, from 3:12 to 3:21 UTC ( Dec 21 )
    I still have the video on dvd, if the observations are needed. 
    Latter that night, I was able to watch the milstar geo sat flares.
    First from the one, parked at 68 degrees West.
    I made up this fake orbit, so I can find it again on another night. I didn't keep any video record
    of it, so I can't measure positions of it.

    Then latter I observed milstar 6 at 90 degrees West. It was closer to it's last real orbit I had
    for it, computed by mike mccants.
    I also observed few leo objects, and got them on video.
