    what I've been doing since these guys introduced me to calsky,  if I have an 
    unknown object or at least one which was not listed on HA from 5.0 or 
    brighter,  I'll search calsky for the objects down to 7.0 or 8.0 for that 
    section of sky at that time.  once I have the resulting list,  I then run 
    them through HA's feature, "select a satellite from the database."  this 
    seems to work beautifully, as I have only had one instance since  I began 
    using this technique where I couldn't ID an object  (it turned out to be 
    cosmos 1484)
    so yeah, I just wanted you to know that calsky and HA compliment one another 
    eternal props to chris peat for his work on HA!!!
    clear skies!
