First predicted satellites!

No big deal to seasoned observers I'm sure, but I used the GSOC prediction
page to catch a Iridium 46 flare, MIR, and Lacrosse 2 within about 15
minutes Sunday evening.  Predicted times seemed to be a minute or so early
and I saw another satellite moving along the same path as Iridium 46, but a
few minutes ahead.  Observed from south central Kentucky.
