    Hi All,
    
    For anyone doing some late-night satellite watching, take a
    break between passes and check out Vesta in the southeast --
    it is currently shining at magnitude +5.6!  Location is about
    12 degrees to the left (ENE) of tau-Sagittarii.  For further
    reference, there is a cluster of four 4th magnitude stars
    about 5 degrees due south of Vesta.  Coordinates for July 6th
    are roughly RA 22h 57m, Dec -22d 15'.
    
    Also, for SoCal, nice passes tonite (Wed., July 5th) predicted
    for Hubble, Iridium 39, Okean-O R/B, Lacrosse 2 & Lacrosse 3 R/B.
