I have actually been a subscriber for about 2 weeks now.  I have been
interested in satellite watching for many years, actually since Sputnik
I.  Until I looked at my July issue of Astronomy, I never knew there was
a way of finding out any kind of "flight plan."  I have been out every
chance looking at the sky, even in the Arizona heat (90 degrees at 2100
hrs.).  I have seen several "birds" as predicted, but have yet to see
any Iridium Flares.  But I'm not a quitter!!  I'm trying to get my wife
and daughter to take a little interest also...

I am located in Casa Grande, AZ (32.87;-111.75).  The name is Jim..

Thanks for all the great work.  I am still trying to figure out some of
the info....
