    Telstar 401 (93-077A, 22927) is flashing in the evening again.  
    It would be nice if someone some hundreds if not a thousand 
    or two km from Austin could see it flashing also.  I expect 
    at least half a dozen up to possibly ten one-power flashes 
    tonight roughly around 8:40-9:00 PM CST (2:40-3:00 UTC), but 
    we don't know when, relatively, it will flash in locations 
    far away from here.  The episodes Saturday and last night 
    were just to the east of the belt of Orion, roughly RA 6:00, 
    Dec -4 (2000).  It flashes about 10-15 minutes earlier from
    night to night.  The flash period is now about 101.5 seconds,
    ten seconds shorter than in November-December.
