Checked on low east geosats from the bridge by my house as I do twice a year. Saw Intelsat 907 (27683) at 9 deg up, only 2 (1 very faint) of the Spainsat trio (27528/28945/37264), and Hylas 1 (37237). Must not be quite the optimum night for 36N yet, as all 3 of Spainsat trio will flare brightly on the best night of cycle. All these were mag 6, except the faint Spainsat, which was only 9, in 20x80s.

Nagging flu had me inside after that despite temps in the 80F range. So I ran 13 images of the main geo belt from New Mexico. Caught at least 62 satellites, will report any of interest. Obviously, I could just image the ones low in the east for me, but I enjoy the challenge of seeing them, parked over the sea off the Ivory Coast.
