    Posted on Twitter, NanoSail-D sent beacon packets confirming sail  
    deploy. They will confirm with ground-based tracking tomorrow morning.
    Observers might be able to make magnitude observations and submit that  
    info to help confirm deployment.
    The submission page is here:
    Good luck!
