Hi Mike,

Had a Compass pass here about six or seven minutes into eclipse.  Sent
commands and first 2 were acknowledged but it was low on the horizon by this
time so maybe it was too low for any further commands to be received.
Received a beacon as follows. Solar panel currents seem a bit strange given
that it was in eclipse!
