Same problem here in Seattle. Just junk and a few flash fly byes. Most everything passes over during the day. But did you hear the Hubble Space Telescope has lost three of it's six gyros! And they are having computer problems too! They announced an emergency shuttle launch for October--but will that be soon enough. They have to replace the MAIN computer--I wonder if that is Y2K related or something other. 10 years is a long time. One things for sure, they are finally saying what is bringing these babies down. Corrosive metals loose their electrical conductivity. In space metals and other materials corrode very fast.
