    The guy 80 km to the west of me saw it's flashes. Here's part of his report.
    Thanks for the finder chart Kevin Fetter.  With your custom finder for my 
    home, it WORKED VERY WELL!   I found the APPLE geosat about 21:19 EST 
    Feb.26th, as it approached an unmistakeable star asterism.  It's quite 
    interesting to observe.  And its "Energizer" batteries are operated by a 
    very dedicated bunny wabbit!
    Using my stopwatch, I timed five flashes, each was at a 17 seconds interval. 
      The flashes were bright, short, somewhat strobe-like pops.
