    Conditions here good tonight , clear frosty skies and sub zero temps.
    Armed with a hot water bottle stuffed up me jacket I am presently conducting 
    a spiral search around 5 degs east and have located 4F2 at  35603 km / 
    259'N 510'E.
    
    It is presently moving quite quickly in a "South  Easterly" direction back 
    towards the arc and is *very*  bright...in fact intial observations give the 
    impression it is almost like two geo birds together.
    
    I understand that the solar panels were extended a couple of days ago and 
    that it is heading for tests at 8 degrees east.
    
    video to follow.
