    I managed to see the toolbag here at Kurri Kurri, New South Wales, 
    Australia, last week as it passed the Gamma star of Triangle Australe, 
    Kevin. It seemed much faster and  dimmer than my previous sighting and I was 
    unable to slew my binocs, 25 X 100s, in time to track it. It was right on 
    time using the phone time? How long before burn-up do you think?  Regards, 
    Col.
