    NOTES:
    -------
    (1) Rather windy - had frequent problems with wind vibration.Stopped
        shortly after moonrise.
    
    (2) Managed to see VORTEX 6 at top of its "figure 8" in the sky-just
        cleared local rooftop - doubt if Ill see it again soon - unless
        somebody blows up neighbours house.
    
    (3) Probably last observation of USA 186 for my summer season- goes into
        shadow too low in the sky to observe from my post.My house in the
        way - wife says I cant blow up my house.
    
    (4) Looks like MERCURY 2 done a slight move - found.
    
    (5) Looks like USA 237 (#38528) done a move - not found at predicted
         position - did not hunt for it this time.
    
    (6) 96041 variable. Made a botch up of looking for 96044- slightly wrong
        part of the sky first attempt and second attempt about an hour later
        somehow looked in correct position but was in shadow - bit puzzled as
        to how I managed two mistakes on one satellite!
    
    Cheers
    Greg
