    Subject: first observation
    Hi all,
    I would like to submit an observation. I haven't really investigated this 
    sat or how much it has been covered, but was anxious to get started after a 
    long afternoon of figuring some things out. And after a lot of very kind 
    help from Ted Molczan learning how ObsReduce works, I observed DMSP F18 
    2009-057A 35951. From 95.25W and 38.58N, using 7x50 binocs, I estimated the 
    sat's magnitude at about 5.5.
    35951 09 057A 0000 G 20100925013440000 17 15 2234272+433528 99 S
    Am really looking forward to submitting more obs without all the additional 
    info. Just wanted to sort of introduce myself this time. Thanks and a 
    special "shout-out" to Ted for all his assistance.
