    Seen as a one-power UNID: Intelsat 512 Rk (16102), a nice 
    tumbling one whose mean motion is too low for Quicksat 
    predictions:
    
    85- 87 B 02-02-11 02:16:41   EC  111.9 0.3  27  4.14  +3.0->inv
    
    USA 160 Rk (26906), a Centaur:
    
    01- 04 B 02-02-11 01:31:12   EC  173.0 4.0   5 35     +3.5->inv
    
    It was great to get to visit the San Antonio Astronomical
    Association on Friday evening!  About ten minutes before
    the meeting we even had passes of two bright objects, a 
    CZ Chinese launch vehicle that was tumbling nicely, and 
    a Globalstar launch vehicle.  Allen Thomson and his wife,
    who have visited Austin in the past, were there from deep 
    south Texas, as was Robert Fenske of San Antonio, and I 
    also got to meet at least two other people with whom I've 
    corresponded!
