    Hi All,
    Haven't seen any North American reports of Superbird observations,
    so I thought I'd provide a prediction of expected peak flash
    times for east coast States:
    Wednesday night, September 20 (Thurs. morning 21 Sept, UT times):
    3:10  Southern Florida
    3:11  Northern Florida (Gainesville, Jacksonville, Tallahassee)
    3:12  Georgia, northern Alabama (Huntsville)
    3:13  South Carolina, Tennessee
    3:14  North Carolina, eastern Kentucky
    3:15  Virginia, West Virginia, southern Ohio, northern Indiana
    3:16  Northern Virginia, D.C., Maryland, Delaware, southwest
          Pennsylvania, northern Ohio (Cleveland)
    3:17  New Jersey, NYC, northeast PA, western New York
    3:18  Connecticut, Rhode Island, western Massachusetts, upstate
          New York, Ontario
    3:19  Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, Ontario
    3:20  Maine, Ontario
    3:21  Nova Scotia, northern Maine, Ontario
    Interpolate as necessary, and start looking early (my times
    may be off a minute or two).  Flash location is about 4-6
    degrees north of the line between epsilon- and rho-Ceti.
    (6 degrees for Miami, 4 degrees for NYC)  About 13 degrees
    above the east-southeast horizon for Washington, D.C.;
    14 degrees for Miami, 15 degrees for Boston.  Good luck!
