No doubt this will be only one of a deluge of replies, but ill throw my
two cents in anyway!  Asinji is normaly refered to by the name "EGP" on
this list and is certainly one of my favorite objects, I have observed
it 13 times in the past year.

As an aside, can anyone tell me the eason the Japanese rename thier
satillites after launch ?
It is a Shinto tradition ?
