    Nice clear sky - we should have had this the previous evening, with the Shuttle 
    pass * sigh *. Observed ISS twice (once in twilight), and EAS (ISS deb) at mag. 
    +4 near 21:05:40 UTC. Failure to spot 03-009B (IGS 1B) at the 21:51 UTC pass, it 
    remained too faint probably.
    
    Not in the mood to do a long observing session. Maybe tonight, along with Perseids.
