    Last night 4/18 PDT between clouds I saw 23502 Cosmos 2306 r, on time
    according to the elset in mccants.tle. Close to mag 1.5, brighter than
    the predicted mag 3.3.
    
    That just reminds me that it's always worth looking at rocket bodies in
    case they have a good orientation on this pass and shine a few mag
    brighter than predicted from the average orientation!
    
    Best, Mark
