    Hi SeeSaters,
    
    The Foton M-3 package has the longest tether ever.
    
    The most amazing thing I have ever seen in 50 years of looking up was 
    the Italian tether experiment from the Shuttle back in the 1990's 
    that failed.  This one is almost twice as long!
    
    Heavens-Above, upon which I depend heavily, does not have these items 
    in the data base yet, and I know that something like a tether isn't 
    going to last too long.
    
    Would any of you kind souls be able to tell me if we have any viewing 
    opportunities here in southern WV (38.067N, 80.434W).  I've got a 
    Clear Sky Alarm for tonight!
    
    Best Regards to All,
