    Hi all,
    
    I operate an Southern hemisphere astronomy site at www.ozskywatch.com
    (non-commercial).
    
    Recently, Australia has a small satellite launched ('FedSat'), and I have
    been trying to find out what it's maximum visual magnitude is - so I can put
    this information on my site.
    
    I would appreciate if someone on the list could help me by giving me some
    idea of how bright it could get. It is 'a 58cm cube'. I have looked once and
    didn't spot it (using a finder chart from www.heavens-above.com).
    
    F.Y.I. sites with information about FedSat can be found at:
    
      http://www.crcss.csiro.au/
      http://www.itr.unisa.edu.au/crcss/FedsatLaunch.htm
    
    Thanks in advance,
    
    Paul Floyd.
