    This local evening at 10:47:09.8 I observed Suitsat,
    using predictions generated by www.heavens-above.com
    I found it faint but visible in 7x50 binoculars,
    magnitude 6.7  at a range of 465Km. This observation
    At the time the objects elevation was 48 degrees.
    It was just on nautical twilight.
    to be careful I ran FINDSAT on the observation 
    and found no other objects within 20 seconds.
