    Hi Gerhard
    I think the one with the highest inclination is around 144 degrees - 
    unfortunately most of them are faint - 8th magnitude or so -but its a weird 
    feeling when tracking these objects as they rise in the east and move westward.
    I do remember seeing one of the Israeli satellite rockets naked eye shortly 
    before decay - this was at least 10-12 years ago..
    Okay on the images - will see what we can do with them and then get you involved 
    in the high stuff :-))
    Cant take any credit as regards the new classified satellite - we wont have 
    optical visibility until the summer months - all I did was a radio track on the 
    rocket whilst the transmitter was still operating.
