Hello All,

Observed some monster flashes (approx. -1 unaided) from ETS-6 last
evening as it moved between Jupiter and Saturn. Sorry, I made no precise
timing measurements, but I saw something from it every 4 or 5 seconds
from the time I picked it up (0120 UTC 14th.Jan 99) to the time I lost it
behind some clouds (0143 UTC).

Continued to track it, but was invisible (using 10 X 50) as it went past
Orion at 0208 UTC after the clouds cleared.
