    While checking on Rascom 1 ( 32387 ), I had a nice sat pass by, which guide 8 didn't show anything there, at the time I was observing.
    
    It passed close to the following star, passing just above it.
    
    TYC 4762 1407 ( tycho star catalog )
    
    J2000 position at current date (proper motion and parallax included):
    Right ascension: 05h01m43.4575s
    Declination: -06 38' 03.104"
    
    The time was around 9:10:13 utc ( Oct 19 )
    
    Then later at around 9:16:54 utc, it got buzzed by a satellite which I see, was globalstar 28 ( 25875 )
    
    Thank goodness for the nexlogger program, as thanks to it, I know where I was, as I chased this satellite.
