  or  - from anywhere  else on the planet its 0064 21 440 443 

if it gets to 9 or more and we can compare notes to decide whether to go to dark sky with cameras..

I understand  that 7 or more is possible from dark sky at this latitude)

Check the weather:    clouds, isobars..  plan the next 6~12 hours...
