    The above were observed from the BCRC site.
    
    Though it's still somewhat early, I've continued scanning for 
    flaring geosats but only have seen one on one evening, and 
    that one was very difficult and brief, a few nights ago.  They
    will begin to be there in a week or less.  Now it appears that
    tropical storm "Rita" may be headed to Texas for next weekend.
