    Last night with a clear sky, something that's been rare this winter, I 
    managed again to see the PAS 1R (26608) flaring.
    
    I observed it at around 9:46 EST ( 2:46 UT Feb 24 ). It was approx mag
    6.2 . It was near 10 h 15 m ( R.A ) -6 deg 37 min ( Dec ). It was brighter 
    then the last time I saw it.
    
    Still waiting to spot galaxy 11 and nimiq 1 .
    
    Last week my new 70 mm refractor arrived, so I can now start to observe 
    sat's going across the moon alot more. I can also now start to look for 
    sat's in a higher oribt, and see if I can spot them.
