    I had hoped to see an even better pass last night but was rained out (a
    beautiful thing right now). Sunday night (8/14/06 UT) I was startled by this
    r/b low in the NE, mag +3 and very fast.

    I presume this is the "D" object, also seen Sunday night, flatly bright
    object (+3) into Keystone of Hercules and then quickly faded to +5. Didn't
    see either of the two followers, but I haven't for some time with 10 x 50's
    unless I really concentrate on them.
