    Good morning -- past my bedtime!
    
    With Ted around we dont really have to track some satellites - as he 
    predicted AEHF1 did another change and the orbit estimate he gave is pretty 
    spot on. Ive just been observing it at 31000 kms distance - not that easy as 
    it has a fairly long invisibility cycle ( tens of seconds) and a shorter 
    visible period at about mag +12.
    
    Will report my observations later today but for the present Teds 7000 orbit 
    is fine, epoch 10245.50641205.
    
    Well done Ted!
    
    Cheers
    Greg
