    That's what I thought, but I didn't want to complain :O)
    In reference to Bjoern's other post about low accuracy work that could be
    done easily by people with less experience, two items came up last night. 
    One, 90070, a recently recovered classified object, was very early (I'll
    post positions later) and bright enough to be seen easily in binoculars.
    That would alert others to be wary when doing their searches. Another was, I
    saw a relatively new satellite SJ-6F (33409), and noticed it was steady. No
    surprise, really, as it is operational as far as I know, but it's always
    useful to see if new objects, especially rocket bodies, might be new
    tumbling or flashing objects.
