    Hi All,
    
    Superbird A's flashes are now visible from the entire contiguous
    U.S., Canada, Mexico and Caribbean.  Flashes make landfall near
    Santa Barbara, CA, at 3:22UT Saturday morning, October 11, and
    sweep east-northeast across North America reaching Nova Scotia
    at 3:49UT.  Some selected locations:
    
    3:23UT  California (from San Fran to San Diego)
    3:24:30  Las Vegas
    3:25 Phoenix
    3:26 Seattle
    3:27 Salt Lake City, El Paso
    3:28 Albuquerque
    3:29 Denver, Colorado Springs
    3:31 Houston
    3:35 Des Moines, New Orleans

    3:46:30 Boston
    
    Flash location for southern California observers is about
    4 degrees to the upper right (west) of eta-Ceti.  Coordinates
    are ~RA 0h 52.5m, Dec -10d 44'.  Coordinates for Boston are
    ~RA 0h 52.5m, Dec -11d 33'.  (Declination varies with the
    latitude of the observer).  To a first approximation, flashes
    occur about 1 minute later each subsequent night.  Good luck!
