    Saturday night 8/3/02 at 03.07.25 UTC 1d under alp cyg 065 az  66 el at a
    slow .11 d/sec with 10 x 50 binocs alt 1939 miles range 2064 miles #25744
    was a first for me. Iridium 52 flared to a -8 at 02.22.00 UTC at 072 az 43
    el  guide star alp cyg = 065 az 58 el.
    An unknown seen moving very fast at 02.20.38 UTC approx 3d under vega was id
    with IDSat and alldat.tle as #26737 / #01014B . A very lucky sighting with
    the unaided eye and then binocs. Apo 22385 mile Per 309 mile, alt seen at
    319 mile and range of 330 mile, and a 1.01 degree/ second per IDSat and
    Element Manager.
    I try to post current info but sometimes have isp problem and I do not
    connect for days, sorry for slowness. Also once posted sighting of #65027BF
    and now doubt  accuracy. I'm an amateur having fun with over 1200 sats
    sighted.
