    Good morning Bjorn, Russell and list,
    I observed 4 selected satellites (cat # 22220 24298 15944 13367) to look for the 
    dip in magnitude expected when they crossed the Moon shadow but I didn't see 
    that dip. Effect of the shadow was barely noticeable even for the part of the 
    track where the satellite had the Sun blocked by more than 90 %.
    I recorded my comments and will make a more detailed report tonight (Eastern 
    time) as I now have to go to work.
