    Oh Ya!
    I finally was able to observe, after so many cloudy nights. I had to wait for thise sat to get
    high enough in the sky.
    I aimed the scope, and looked at the tv, and watched carefully.
    At 2:47 UTC ( Jan 7 ) I noticed a star in the right area.
    I watched for a few minutes to confirm it's the sat, it the sat!
    Oh yes, another sat who main body causes a flare.
    Oh such a happpy sat observer!
    The nice thing is this sat tle is not classfd, so easier to track over the milstars in a sense.
    Did my litte dance, just like the night I discoverd my first asteroid using spacewatch. Glad no
    one around to see me, they think I am crazy. Oh well that's there problem.
