    COMMENTS:
    
    I setup, observed, put away the camera and other equipment, measured, and
    wrote this email in 30 minutes so I could send the email when I was at the
    Wifi spot.... Long hard day tomorrow, but Lacrosse doesn't make a pass,
    so...
    
    ALMOST (!) fooled by a flare from OKEAN 5... Some OKEAN near the mag 2.6
    star in LEO before Denobola..Top of the rear hips.. But I wasn't fooled
    because it was Lacrosse 5.. Always essentially on time and track..
    
    But I am going to be very screwed when SpaceTrack makes the "switch" and I
    can't download the "Catalog" file from inside Heavensat..
