    15983 is predicted to make several more passes this site, will follow-up.
    
    Superbird A, not sure if this series was the brightest but they were close,
    mags 2.5 to 3.5  The first three seemed to be the brightest, but what a
    moon??? Observed from site 8936.
    03:21:02.77,  14.15, 25.59, 37.09, 48.56,
    03:22:00.06, 11.52, 23.02, 34.53, 46.12, 57.59 
    
    USA 129, first pass- was not sure I was scanning in the correct area,
    poor visibility at 25 elevation, haze and moon pollution, nothing seen
    Second pass- no show, should have seen it, good visibility near 8.0,
    scanned for three minutes prior to and twenty minutes after predicted 
    pass, it may have maneuvered?
