    That's good news, Phobos. Glad you spotted it. It says that the windmill looking thing will be visible. I sometimes see satellites an hour or two after sunset---they'v always been polar orbit---going roughly north or south. and they look like slowly moving stars

    I have the impression that this (because 100? foot diameter) should be
    more noticeable. Hope someone at PF will tell us when to be on the lookout.
