    Notes:
    
    (1) Errant point of 96072A remeasured - dont know what happened- maybe my
        mouse wasnt totally dead and did a little creep!
    
    (2) Sat #07816 tracked for about 3 minutes and only this brief flash of
        about 2 second duration seen
    
    (3) Sat #23769 not predicted, looked "interesting" so measured one point
        but turned out to be KoreaSat 2 rocket - interesting orbit.
    
    (4) Sat #18009 NOSS 8(E) did a nice bright flare to about 4th magnitude
        for a few seconds.
    
    Cheers
    Greg
