    Bad luck with the KH's. I missed USA 129 due to confusion with a stray passing 
    through the field in a similar direction. I did see the real USA 129 naked eye, 
    it was bright and seemed early to me.
    
    USA 186 was lost in clouds coming in just minutes before its pass.
    
    I did see and photograph a nice mag. -4 flare of Iridium 43 though.
