    91- 46 A 02-08-28 06:00:15.2 PG 3422.5 0.2 61  56.11  F'F' +4.5->inv
    not sure what time it started, but I picked
    it up around 0503 ut and it was going strong
    when I ended 0600 ut.  
    I brought the locking bino mount out of storage,
    and locked into az/el earlier in the evening with
    some 'easy' ref stars through a niche in the
    rooftops and it was a minor tweak to find it 3 hours
    later.  I'm figuring out how to do this as it drops
    out of view in the SW.   I also eyeballed it once
    and did not see the flash unaided which is more or
    less consistent with +4.5 here as the flash looks
    4_ish bright in bino fov.  I might get it again
    tomorrow thru the niche. 
    wxman says its too hot for clouds.
