Thanks to everyone who responded wanting to know my position,  etc.  And 
thanks Alphonse for the predictions but I just realised it is actually 
Thursday night.

Since you asked:  Longitude : 19.0147 East
                  Latitude  : 33.6489 South
                  Time Zone : GMT + 2 Hours
                  Observing : 19H00 - 23H00 lcl (17H00 - 21H00 UT)
                              on 3 October 1996

I should have made myself more clear,  since I can do my own predictions 
what I am really after is a list of satellites (Norad numbers are ok) 
that people would reccomend would be interesting for the layman to look at.

Thanks again
