    Notes:
    ------
    
    (1) Nice conditions , little chilly and mild breeze. Main purpose was to
        get current positions of the UFO satellites over me in preparation
        for a radio scan to locate the PAN satellite if positioned in my
        part of the world.
    (2) If Im not too lazy tomorrow I will do the satellites seen accidentally 
    with
        the video system.
    
    Cheers
    Greg
