    Very clear, but first quarter moon in sky. Short session as I was very tired. 
    Missed USA 186 due to an untimely field of clouds.
    
    Showed my neighbour the moon through the telescope during early twilight. 
    Observed and photographed two Iridium flares, by Iridiums 98 (mag -2.5) and 41 
    (mag. +1.5).
