    Hi all,
    
    My girlfriend and I just observed the Globalstar Delta 2 rocket (#26085,
    2000-008E). It was, as anticipated, a bright and fast mover at mag +1
    and steady. But it was very early (1 min 13 s) and about 1 degree off track
    to the south using Alan's predicted elset :
    
    Gbstr 63 Del r   7.0  2.0  0.0  5.5 d   15       236 x 147 km
    1 26085U 00008E   00135.27461182  .06124167  15553-1  39898-3 0 92224
    2 26085  49.5261 219.8904 0068209 314.5623  44.8829 16.30346951 14707
    
    We should be in an excellent position to witness what could be its last orbit
    tomorrow morning.
    
    Cheers,
    
    Dan
