Hello BB's

I have a question for any of the fine satellite operators of New Zealand 
and Australia.  Does any one in those areas monitor AO7 as it enters 
into the Eclipse as it nears the coast of Antarctica?

The pass that is flying over right now has an eclipse period duration of 
9:40. I was curious as to how the satellite was reacting in the 
"twilight" period as the satellite approached the full eclipse and 
unfortunately the satellite doesn't appear to be near any populated 
areas when it comes out of this eclipse. this is one of the longer 
eclipse's that occurs during this period of the Eclipse Cycle.

Any information would be of interest to me.

thanks for the help from those who have emailed!
