    NOTES:
    -------------
    (1) Another one of those near-perfect nights, marred only by occassional
        wind gusts. Seeing 8.8 arc sec which is about as good as Cape Town
        gets. Transparency good because wind blew all industrial/squatter
        camp pollution away - could even see some Milky Way near the zenith!
    
    (2) Looks like USA 237 may still be moving about - not as far east as
        predicted.
    
    (3) USA 236 not seen - probably done a recent move.
    
    (4) DSP F18 cover easy - this time appeared to be steady during the few
        minutes observed.
    
    (5) Have now looked for 96044 on numerous occassions and have not seen it
        so must be very faint/small. 96041 mostly an easy object but variable
        on a relatively short time scale.
    
    (6) 96668A tried but no sign so must be small/faint or long period of
        invisibility
    
    (7) May have a mix-up of the four commercial TV satellites serving Spain-
        HISPASAT's and SPAINSAT - small tight grouping of four satellites.
    
    Cheers
    Greg
