    -------------------
    I tracked Cosmos 2001  for about 8 minutes this evening with my 10 inch (250 
    mm) dob.  Early in  the pass it drifted in and out of visibility as it was at 
    the limit of my  visibility at 11.5 mag.  After about 3 minutes it appeared to 
    be steady at  10 to 10.5 mag.
