    Clouds parted just in time to observe Astra group 19 east entering shadow.
    There's a noticeable difference in magnitude between the seven birds ... 1B 
    is well out to the east.

    The file is about 700 kb.
    When Windows viewer opens , set play speed to slow to see the sequence the 
    satellites entered shadow.
    Times are GPS synchronised......location 53.23.15 N 03.05.30 W
    
    Needless to say , the cloud returned shortly after , consequently the birds 
    were not observed coming out of eclipse .
