    One of those little serendipities.  Last night while looking at 
    Comet C/1999 S4 (LINEAR) with Mike McCants' telescope, a bright 
    meteor streaked through the field of view followed almost 
    immediately by a satellite going in the opposite direction!  
    The best candidate for the satellite seems to be LCS 4 (05398, 
    71-067E).  If memory serves, the telescope set-up yields an 
    approximately one-degree FOV.  Location: 30.314N, 97.866W, 280m.
