AO-51 was in great shape as it passed south above the Pacific Ocean
this morning (6/3/2011 1410z). No one else was on, but I had a nice
S9+ full quieting downlink on my uplink for the entire pass.
The birds footprint was still in daylight when it went LOS, so even
though it was 1000mi west of the sun line when it dipped below my
horizon, it was still in sunlight at that point.
