    Forgot to mention - after Juno comes out of shadow it is out of range to South 
    Africa until several hours later but then very low on the horizon and distance 
    something over 100 000 kms so probably around mag +15 or more and observable 
    from around the India area if memory correct. The flyby trajectory is very 
    steep - and range changing very rapidly from geosat type ranges at AOS to LEO at 
    shadow entry and to 550 kms at time of closest approach and then zooming out 
    again rapidly -- its just an earth gravity assisted sling shot to get it to
