    Notes:
    ======
    (1) Fair conditions with bright moon.
    
    (2) Globalstar MO53 --- is it or isnt it ?. Stray seen and best fit
        is Globalstar MO53 which was, if correct, running 35 seconds early
        on day old elements! Also somewhat fainter than a typical Globalstar
        but no Globalstar seen at predicted time.
    
    (3) Nice seeing Nimbus 3 - many moons ago I used to received weather
        pictures from it - wish I was still that young!!   ( 40 years 
    ago-yikes!!!)
    
    (4) 90061 a difficult object at large ranges- slow variable
    
    (5) The group PAN/INTELSAT 802/GALAXY 11 and EBIRD positions-dont match
        the SPACETRACK predictions. I called the most western member PAN on
        account of PAN being the brightest member of this group.
    
    (6) CCD observations processed using APEX, video done manually
    
    Cheers
    Greg
