    Hi All:
    This is Brian Webb in southern California. I publish a newsletter* about
    California astronomy and space news.
    My newsletter has carried info about ICESat, so the idea of observing
    flashes from the ICESat laser are interesting.
    I'd like to add a one paragraph write-up on this topic for my newsletter.
    Here are some questions:
    	- How bright are the flashes?
    	- Do you need to be at a dark site?
    	- Any observing tips for beginners?
    By the way, I covered the ICESat launch from Vandenberg AFB in January. It
    was great!
