DFS-1 location

If DFS-1 is indeed at 120-deg West, that would be an excellent candidate for
California observers (like myself).  For LA, a geosynchronous satellite at
120-deg west would be 50.4-deg above the southern horizon, azimuth 183.1.  If
you look tonite (7/23) at 23:13PDT, this position is 2 degrees below Eta-Ser
(mag 3.4).  Look 4 minutes earlier each subsequent night for the same
arrangement relative to Eta-Ser...  --Rob
