    For what it's worth, here's a position, seen from the 
    Ney Museum grounds (30.307N, 97.727W, 150m):
    
    23031, 94-017B, USA 102, seen in the bowl of the Little Dipper
    UTC 2005/08/16 03:14:40.4 -- RA 15:02.9, Dec +73.4 (2000)
    
    CBERS 1 (25940, 99-057A) was very bright (up to +1.5) from 
    shadow exit through Cygnus and all the way past Polaris.
    
    Seesat (10967, 78-064A) was very bright in the bowl of 
    the Little Dipper (Ursa Minor).  Saturday evening I was
    showing it to someone at a star party, and it briefly 
    flared to at least -2 in Cygnus.  It might have done that
    tonight, but I was looking elsewhere for most of its pass.
