Uh oh!  My apologies to Sue Worden, whose posted a message with
three or four Lat/Lon servers, including the one I unknowingly
duplicated just days after she posted it.  See her message at:

Tony Beresford replied to her message, although his subject line
was "Re: Iridium Flash".  His reply is at:

Thursday night here had a little cloud interference, but I still 
was able to see six and show three of those to a passer-by who 
seemed fairly interested.  We had an excellent pass by NOSS 2-3 Rk 
(23907, 96-29B), and also Mars Pathfinder Rk (24668, 96-68B) was 
easy to see.  The other one I showed him was HST, which wasn't too
good due to cloudiness in the south.  The other three were GPS 39 
Rk (24323, 96-56B), Aureole 2 Rk (07004, 73-107B, very bright 
again), and Cosmos 1943 Rk (19120, 88-39B).
