Glad you started this thread Martin, i've been reading about it over the last couple of days.   Just to add to it here's a link to a chart for its position from mid july to mid august  http://www.global-rent-a-scope.com/display/ShowImage?imageUrl=/storage/2010X1_GRAS_Chart_Jul-Aug_2011.jpg?__SQUARESPACE_CACHEVERSION=1293784634897

Like you say, it's revised orbit should put it a good few, perhaps several magnitudes brighter than that indicated on the chart.  Fingers crossed, we're due a gud' un'.  Roll Eyes
