As I mentioned to John, it seems I really started something with this, didn't
I?  I think this is the biggest topic of discussion we've had in some time.

A question comes to mind.  If this is a diffraction pattern, wouldn't it show up
on at least a few of his other photos? If it appears on just one other photo,
that prove the trails are not sats.  If he took other photos of bright stars
without the pattern appearing, that would increase the probability of the trails
coming from sats. I still have not received a reply to my letter to the
I'll try to post a clearer scan over the weekend. It's almost 3 am and I want to
try some observing now in spite of the moon being around.
