A member of the Austin Astronomical Society informed me last night
that flashes from Superbird A were observed (by a large number of
people :-) at the Winter Star Party in Key West, Florida, last
Friday evening.  He said the flashes were seen to magnitude 4 or 5
about 10PM EST.  This would be 3 hours UT on Feb. 8.  Key West
is approximately latitude 24.6, longitude 81.8.
