    The latitude here is 30 north.  Beginning last September 28 
    I was able with handheld 10x50 binoculars to see some 
    flaring geosynchs each night through October 5, after which 
    the weather became unfavorable.  That was roughly 7 to 12 
    days after the equinox; roughly the same period before the 
    equinox now comes out to about March 8-13.  Unfortunately 
    that is just about the worst phase of the Moon.  Still, I
    hope the weather is favorable!
    By the way, I was able to see at least some of them two to 
    three hours or possibly more before shadow entry.
