    I use guide 8, for satellite id and watching.

    I lilk to run it in real time mode, so say I am tracking a geo sat, and another sat passes by, I
    can see what the object is. That's assuming we know about it, I am sure there a few objects up
    there we don't have orbits for. 
    
    I also assume stuff when I do a search, like time errors. So far I have bagged 4 satellites for
    people, who wanted to know what they saw. 2 so far for chiayk. It fun to try to id stuff.
    
    Then my neirbour see's something, and I id it for him. The other day, sure looks like he saw
    lacrosse 3.
