 Hi all,

as I read on AO-7's Online LogBook, today the Satellite "switched" on Mode-A
after a long time.
Looking for eclipse-periods,  according to NOVA today @ 12:25 UTC it was the

last Eclipse  for the current season!   The next one will be on 12th of May,
2009 .

 However, according to Emily's Log that is not true, the end of eclipses
take place at October 2008.


 I wondering...  Is it NOVA "true"  or Emily's Log ?
