    Thanks for the write up Art!  I am very grateful for such information.
    In regard to H-A, if you go to "select a satellite from the database" you
    can get passes for objects that have a magnitude that is far less than +5.
    E.g. Vanguard 1 is listed as having an intrinsic brightness of mag. 10.3 (at
    1000 km distance, 50% illuminated) and a maximum brightness of mag  8.4.
    Clear skies,
