At 2130UT, no more elsets had appeared !? This morning at 0600 I found:

My apologies for not considering the effects of the low MM:
at about 2.5 orbits/day, it will be visible from a given point
(at about latitude 50-65) only every other day; at 2.67 every
third day; at 2.9 perhaps once or twice in ten days! But this
situation will last only a day or two, so the appearances will
then become more frequent.

Northern Europe may have good passes Friday and Wednesday, an
Eastern pass on Sunday morning. The big cities in Eastern Canada
ar too far South to have good passes now - do we have any members
in Alaska or West Canada ?
