    Ted Molczan added notes about "red" satellites.

    data.

    2002-022A, 2004-026A and 2006-016A are "members" of the so called
    A-train constellation.
    
    An interesting URL is:  http://www-calipso.larc.nasa.gov/about/atrain.php
    
    The last two observation records concern geostationary objects.
    I mention 2006-007A Spainsat and I remember it was brighter once,
    but can not find its record in my log.
