Morning all ( mine!)

Ive had a look at the possible passes. They are borderline cases for 
observation from my 4th floor apartment "tracking station" as both sets 
of elements have the satellite in shadow by the time it enters my 
"observation window". However I think I can improve the situation by 
moving the telescope base to shift  my "observing window" further east 
and thus see the illuminated part of the track. (means moving some 
furniture around in my apartment!).  The second pass- although high 
elevation is too far to the west for my "observing window" which is 
around azimuth 0 to 90 degrees and elevation 3 degrees to about 60 degrees.

Cheers

Greg
