    Notes:
    
    (1) Satellite 21798 1st pass - rather difficult as sky still too bright.
    
    (2) Satellite 07816 bit difficult - flashes far and few between,mostly
        invisible.
    
    (3) Satellite 25017 - Lacrosse 3 3rd position well into shadow-just
        visible.
    
    Cheers
    Greg
