    COMMENTS:
    
    No TecSAR or OTV3.. TecSAR I will give up on with this setup.. OTV3 was in a
    cloudy sky, but still.. Sum Ting Wong.. 
    
    I have an UNID flasher running same direction (but seriously off track and
    30 seconds later)as #1668 near Procyon moments before DMSP F18. It Appulsed
    8 CMi /SAO 115610 at (J2000) RA 07 33 11.6 Dec 03 17 25.0 at a UT time of
    03h 33m 44.996s. 11 Flashes over around 30 seconds.. If anyone thinks it's
    important, I can determine a second point, but I still can't do an UNID in
    Obsreduce.. Don't know how..
    
    Will hit it again tomorrow if clear.. We shall see, as the prospects aint so
    swift, with ORS1 near 6:30 PM again.. (AM update.. it's not clear, so don't
    count on me tonight, though I'll try anyway for ORS1 at least..)
