    Between and after my obs last night, I saw three northbound satellites:
    
    an UNID near theta UMa 20:23:54 RA 09:30 Dec +52, moving ~5 deg/12 s
    in DIR ~095 (ie near culmination)
    
    COSMOS 1408 SL-14 R/B #13553 21:41:17 DIR ~030
    
    RAX ?? #37223 about 60s early on epoch 11047 elset near RA 14:30 Dec
    +50 22:44:20
    
    The latter was while waiting for NanoSail D2, a few minutes later on a
    pass predicted to culminate at 89.5 deg altitude, with the Sun at
    azimuth 1.3 (near true midnight)! The sail was definitely not
    vertical, since it was about magn +1 passing zenith, and brightened to
    +0 soon after.
