    Using my 10x50s i tracked Grav Probe B r #28231 04014B despite some tall
    trees behind my place and at 05:43:34 +/- 3 sec 22 Apr UTC it passed just
    below a greenish glowing Venus. Then a little later on i was following
    Gravity ProbeB #28230 04014A waiting for it go below Capella to get a time
    when at 05:58:57 it flared at approx Az 300deg El 29 deg. I was watching it
    with my 10x50s and it got real bright with an orange tint to it but when i
    switched to 1x the flare was gone and i had to go back to my binocs to see
    it again.
