    Heads up on Orion 3 -- The first pass last night was another
    spectacular, 
    but I wasn't able to find it with binoculars on the second pass.  (Maybe 
    the super bright flashes are only with certain early-evening passes -- 
    smaller negative solar elevation?)  I didn't even have a prediction for 
    the early, spectacular pass last night due to it not making my magnitude 
    cut-off parameter.  So if you see a dozen or so -4 to -6 flashes at an 
    interval of about every 21.7 seconds in a low-inclination object, check 
    for Orion 3!
