    While viewing Comet Lulin with 15 x 70 binoculars, I noticed some irregular  
    period flashes, 5-8th magnitude, in the NW quardrant of the 4.4 degree field 
    of  view. Later, using my minimal resources, I failed to ID any satellites  as 
    potential flashers. Thought it could have been geo(s) but the declination  
    strikes me as low for my location?  I'm just a casual sat observer--please  
    suggest the best software tools to ID sats/geosats, and/or help ID. Thanks in  
    advance. Peter
