    Hi again,
    While waiting for IGS 1B, I saw the IGS Adapter (#27701) on the same track but 5 
    min earlier at mag 6 or 7, it was quite fast.
    I also saw the end of a mag 2 flare from Iridium 60 at 03:14:53 I mistook for 
    IGS 1B. It was almost on the same track and had to reset my stopwatch when I saw 
    another sat (the real IGS 1B) just behind. My IGS point in my previous message 
    should be the right one.
    Despite the reduced field of view in my 20x80, I saw many other sats while 
    waiting for my targets. The skies are really crowded !
