    Hi All,
    Superbird A (#20040) continues to be well-positioned for
    producing flashes across Africa and Europe.  Flashes now
    sweep primarily west to east -- so for Europe, they start
    in Portugal around 3:01 UT (7 March), peak in London
    around 3:08; Edinburgh and Paris at 3:09; Belgium at 3:10;
    Switzerland at 3:11; Florence and Venice at 3:12; Denmark,
    Salzburg and Rome at 3:13; southern Sweden, Munich and Vienna
    around 3:14; and central Sweden at 3:15.  (Hopefully I've
    covered most of the locations of our European Seesat
    members.)  The ~6-minute flash window shifts about a
    minute later each night.
    Flash location is about 25 degrees above the SE horizon
    for London, which is about 15 degrees above Mars and on
    the border between Scorpius and Ophiuchus.  --Rob
