    COMMENTS:
    
    Man is ORS1 fast.. And if it wasn't ORS1, I never would try to record
    anything in this bright of sky. It was only dark enough to make reduction
    easy by three minutes max.. 6:35ish PM PST..
    
    No OTV3 in Lynx.. No TecSAR in Orion where the path intersected with NOSS
    3-2 R.. 
    
    NOSS 3-2 R has a nice heartbeat and I have a nice lightcurve for it's pass,
    if anyone is interested. I also have 11 jpegs with exact timing of each
    flash if anyone wants to use them to report..
    
    A little Project today, but should be good to observe this whole week. If
    something needs doing the way I do things, let me know.. I will hammer the
    snot out of ORS1 as long as I can.. I could use things I can actually see..
    And I'll start going deep as the Moon vacates the area.. Deep being
    relative.. :-))
