    Hey Kevin,
         Excellent - stable - imagery!. So tonight at
    6:30UT the point on the Clarke Orbit opposite the Sun
    and at your latitude's CO declination is:
    RA: 3:36:55
    Dec.: -6deg 38min
    
         This will be farther west than the two videos you
    shot last night. I would be interested in a video of
    32018 passing through this area. Will 32018 be
    brighter than later on??? I would be interested in
    when you think that 32018 reaches it's brightest (what
    RA).
    
         Regards,
