according to Heavens Above, it'll be 2018 Mar 09 before we get our first chance 
at spotting this one :(

our best chance would be the second pass on 2018 Mar 13... gotta remember to put 
these in the calendar and get alerts about them :)

maybe Heavens Above would add them to the visible satellites list in their 
mobile app? ;)
