    Hi All
    
    Herewith last nights observations ( 10 Dec 2000 UT) + recent PPAS
    observations:

    PPAS data:
    
    These observations were made using my CoSaTrak system whilst waiting
    for USA 129. No attempt was made to follow the satellites so observations
    based on what was seen in the time it took to traverse the 4.8 degree
    field of view of the CCD camera as seen on a video monitor.

    Something completely different and unrelated: DONT use Internet Explorer
    5.5-
    it is so buggy and caused me many hours grief! - go back to IE5.01!
    
    Cheers
