    My observation today appears to confirm Russell's obs with question mark and
    Mike's orbit.
    DMSP B5D2-7 Mike
    1 23233U 94057A   00004.76327708  .00000450  00000-0  23997-3 0    07

    I tried to see flashes from 23230 ETS-6 approx. 19:00 2000-01-08 to shadow
    entry 19:30 local time.
    Visual limit +4.5 right of and below Orion. Occasional scans with 7*50
    binocs.
    Also tried for a few minutes 19-19:30 UT for 21132 Raduga 27 and 25868 CXO
    Rk in 7*50.
    08459 C 783 rk found as very faint UnId at 16 deg el.NE, moving slowly in
    direction 100 deg. relative to local vertical. Later ID-ed and found to be
    entering shadow.
