    NOTES:
    ==========
    (1) Main purpose was to observe AEHF1.
    
    (2) 90061 very faint and variable
    
    (3) VORTEX 6 appears to be "missing" - probably done an orbit change
        which it does approximately every 200 days to maintain "station"-
        shouldnt be a problem to find again.
    
    (4) Still to do observations obtained on video.
    
    (5) AEHF 1 observations are duplicate - reported earlier today.
    
    Cheers
    Greg
