    NOTES:
    ----------
    (1) Purpose of session was to follow VORTEX 6 as it drifts lower
        down in the sky to the east. I will be loosing it within the
        next few days after which it will be probably be lost to the
        amateur community.
    
    (2) GEOLITE very faint (real ?) - only one observation
    
    Cheers
    Greg
