For some reason I like seeing them when they're at perigee and go
over at 232 km (145 miles)!  This was Globalstar 33 Rk, Thursday
morning local time:

99- 49 E 99-12-23 12:36:30   EC   77.7 2.0  16  4.9   mag: maxima +0

There were some clouds in the way for parts of the pass, plus its 
maxima weren't too easy for me to time, so I used a 2-second 

Also managed to see GRO (21225, 91-27B), Lacrosse 3 (25017, 97-64A,
very bright pass near zenith), and Cosmos 1077 Rk (11269, 79-12B).
Missed bright Iridium flare, due to not looking at the correct 
azimuth and having it behind a building or possibly to low but
substantial clouds in that direction.

30.3086N, 97.7279W, 150m
