    Hi all,
    I have observed Lacrosse 4 about 20 minutes ago. I just want to mention that 
    the path traced by astro soft "Guide 7" was a little bit off. Guide 7 traced it 
    to the right side of Saturn (near 19:36:50) when facing south and watching 
    overhead. But in fact, I've seen Lacrosse 4 passing between Aldebaran and 
    Saturn... so to the left side of Saturn. I cannot say if the timing was perfect 
    because I wasn't watching my watch... but it was pretty close. Finally I don't 
    know which I should blame; the software or the TLE. I was using this TLE from 
    Mike McCants:
