NOTES-

I have corrected something I had set wrong in Heavensat. I can display *all* the sats now.. Can not ID the following.. 
***
What covers more than 1 degrees of sky per second, passed near the Milstar 6, and appulsed TYC 5765-26-1 @ (J2000) RA 20h 56m 00.8s
DEC -11 32 09.9 between 04h 03m 21.838s and 22.906s?? Mostly in the opposite direction of Milstar 6 in a North up (Equatorial) FOV..
i.e. Milstar 6 is headed towards "9 O'Clock", this would be headed to "4 O'Clock.. In addition, there is this point.. (exact)..
99999 99 999DC  8739 G 20140831040322879 26 25 2058470-112413 37
***

Gorizont 17 (#19765) was flashing to mag 7 in the Prowler FOV..

MSX by accident by Prowler.. YEAH!

Purpose was to find AEHF 3.. Didn't see it between the regular elset and the INT elset to about mag 12.. i.e. Prowler, which is the
dimmest thing I have ever measured.. Will have to try harder, unless it is known to be dim..
