    A few hours, before it goes into shadow, I can easily see XM-1 ( 26761 ) on the tv, using my wide feild method of observing. It mag 8 range.
    So I wait, and see how it behaves, ie a flare off the angled reflector panel.
    And at the same time, keep an eye out for Intelsat 704 which is nearby, for flashing.
