    The last two evenings this one has been visible low in the 
    southwest, still tumbling and flashing every eight seconds 
    or so.  It's not going to be up there much longer.
    Last night from outside where I work I saw six one-power
    flashes from Telstar 401, beginning at about 1:23:30 UTC
    (7:23:30 PM local time).  It's about 45 degrees up in the
    south-southwest.  Tonight I plan to begin to try to see it 
    from some friends' house at about 1:10 UTC (7:10 PM local).
