Best night of March geosat season for my latitude sure lived up to billing.
Only looked at one DSO (SN in M82), too busy with flares and classfd objects
at their peak. At dusk, the Spainsat trio made a naked eye 4th mag star,
and were a brilliant blue-white trio in binoculars. AMC-9 was brighter than
Alphard later. Several other geosats not reported noticed here and there
while slewing or just looking up naked eye!

Classfds were fish (birds?) in a barrel with DSC - only problem was wind
picked up and high clouds rolled in when moon set so I had to miss the
"rush hour" of sats predicted around midnight. A few were found without
waiting until the time for chart I printed - this is really getting fun
and easy.

On pulling in driveway at home, noticed the superior planets, all
stationary this week, ending or starting retrograde loop. Good way to
imagine the extent of the orbits, and our place.
