    Hello all, sorry about the empty reply earlier...
    First observation for me too of GP-B tonight at 22:20 EDT (2:20 april 25 
    UTC) from my location at 45.83N, 73.91W with my 10X50 binoculars. I'd 
    say magnitude was around +5. Also noticed the orange color and there was 
    also a bright flare just as it went north of the Moon. As it flared, I 
    looked without the binoculars and it was really very bright, I'd say 
    around 0 and maybe even -1.
