    Notes:
    -------
    (1) A good night which means much measuring - Ive run out of time for
        today so hope to report the other 18 or so classified satellites
        tomorrow as well as the strays.
    
    (2) Probably last observation of USA 129 for a while as now going into
        shadow as it clears local buildings. USA 186 wont be around for
        much longer either.
    
    (3) STSS ATRR #34903 recovered - last seen August last. Unable to get
        more points as I followed it for quite a while but the DVD recorder
        decided to play up and now unable to read that portion of the recording
        but not serious.( unless of course this signifies the DVD recorder is
        dying - looking for an excuse to get a newer/better one!)
    
    (4) Some of the magnitudes reported may seem abnormally faint - this is
        because that particular observation was made shortly after satellite
        went into the earths shadow so was rapidly fading.
    
    Cheers
    Greg
