	Do any satellites appear RED?  Saturday night, about 2134 LCL (0334Z) I
spotted a satellite that appeared red.  It was southeast from here, about
30 degrees up, and moving toward the northeast.  I'd sure appreciate any
guesses as to what this was.  I don't think it was an airplane, as I saw no
strobes or anti collision lights.  Just a red spot.  Like a satellite.
	I apologize for the scampy report, but I was riding my bicycle at the
time, and hadn't expected to do any observing.
