    I want to get heavens above to show me a particular satellite that
    is geostationary and has "unknown" brightness, but I can't get
    it to show me any passes/orbits.
    
    There is a "Mag" parameter in the URL and I tried changing it to
    + or - 30 (wasn't sure if mag was the satellite or the limit).  I can't
    find any "limiting magnitude" features either.
    
    I know I can use skymap and other software but I want to be able
    to email a link to heavens above to show someone a pass.  If this
    doesn't work I guess I'll do screen shots and email that.
    
    Here is what I can't get to work:
    http://129.247.177.14/passsummary.asp?lat=38.89&lng=-89.41&alt=0&loc=xxx&TZ=CST&satid=20391&Date=38438.7083333333&Mag=
    
    Thanks,
    George Roberts
