    Just an off-topic note to say that under mediocre conditions 
    (at best!) this morning (June 28) I was able to observe Comet 
    C/2001 A2 (LINEAR) with my 10x50s between 9:30 and 9:55 UTC.
    I'm not sure of the magnitude, but once I got away from the
    worst city light, it was pretty easy to see just north of eta
    Ceti.  This is from 30 degrees north.  There are a couple of 
    more mornings when the Moon will set early enough for those 
    at the right latitudes (i.e., not too far north).  Here's a 
    link to the Minor Planet Center's daily ephemeris for this 
    Plan to observe some satellites soon!
