    Okean-O Rk continues to slow.
    The ISS made a nice pass this evening.   It passed through the handle of the 
    Big Dipper (315az, 42el) at 00:46UTC, 13 August.  Its brightness was about a 
    0 mag - as slightly brighter than both Arcturus and Vega. 
    Cosmos 955 (10362, 77091A) may be in a slow roll.  It exited eclipse, passed 
    directly overhead and descended to the horizon at az009 beginning at 
    01:38UTC, 13 August.  As it passed overhead it was about +1.0 mag.   After 
    passing behind some clouds I reacquired it at about a +5.0 mag as it passed 
    to the right of Polaris.  Tomorrow evening at my location it will pass over 
    Arcturus and through the Big Dipper at 21:45-21:47EDT (01:45-01:47UTC August 
    SeeSat (10967, 78064A) was +2.0mag as it passed high in the NNW at 02:12UTC 
    13 August.
    Sunsat (25636, 99008C) was a non-obs due to too much ambient light.
