Looks like we might see how "Lucky" we really are. Here are the locations
from the past two days. The most recent set ended rather abruptly at about
5:00AM (EST) yesterday. While it is not unusual to skip a few satellite
passes, this is unusual for "Lucky" as for the past two days he has been
signaling quite consistently. It is possible that he has hauled out of the
water for long enough to shut down the tag (if the tag is dry for more than
six hours it will shut down to conserve battery power), or he has hauled
out in an area that is blocking transmissions from the tag.

Meanwhile the location data show "Lucky" to be located in much the same
place as the past five days or so, staying close to Pickering Island Maine.

Keep your fingers crossed...
