    Last night (31 October 2010 UTC) observed Fleetsatcom 1 
    (78-016A, 10669) around 2:45 to 3:02 UTC in the vicinity 
    of RA 23:00, Dec -7.  I didn't get a good flash period 
    due to there being something else about 2-3 degrees to 
    the west that distracted me.  But I did get two separate
    timings of about 198 seconds.  It was bright, at least 
    magnitute +4.0.  Don't know what the other one was.
    
    Then later observed Intelsat 512 (85-087A, 16101) around 
    3:22-27 UTC in the vicinity of RA 21:49, Dec -18.3.  PPAS:
    
    85- 87 A 10-10-31 03:26:25   EAC 225.5 0.1  15 15.03 4.0->inv
