    Hello Brian,
    You reported a flash observation:
    > Through some private email it was suggested that my unid was
    > fltsatcom 3 (norad 11669). Checking with HA and their TLE's
    > I've confirmed that's what I saw.
    > Here's my raw timings and time of first flash (within 1 sec).
    > 52.891 - 21:21:49 PDT July 5, 2005
    > 10.628
    As PPAS collector I like to add your observation to our PPAS database.
    I have some questions about it.
    1) Can you tell me (or any other interested person) the difference (in hours
    I suppose) between PDT and UTC.
    2) It has once been agreed to use the observer's initials (2 or 3
    characters) in the observation record, like my initials are BD (Bram
    Dorreman). What initials can I apply for your record?
    3) What are the geographical coordinates of the location from which you
    A description of how to report PPAS observations can be found at
    The URL explaning the format of PPAS observations :
    I shall complete your observation in PPA format as soon I have the answers
    on my questions above.
    Best regards
    Bram Dorreman
    Collector PPAS observations
