    Beautiful night. Lots of points on 96072A.
    
    Last night I had 91076D and C 2 seconds late on an elset. Tonight I have it 
    1 second early on the revised elset.
    I did check my stopwatch set times and entries to ObsReduce and they are 
    correct.
    
    The point recorded for 80019D is 45 seconds late on a 62 day old elset. I 
    was looking 3/4 degree above alpha Aquila and the satellite I saw was closer 
    to 1.2 degree above alpha Aquila. I have not been able to identify any of 
    the other points I made over the next minute of tracking. Idsat using 
    SpaceTrack alldat plus classfd.tle does not show any other sat in area close 
    enought going the correct direction. I wish I could identify other points.
    
    Iridium 10 flared better than the -4 mag predicted at 02.06.09 UTC. A 30 
    second exposure was taken.
    
    Lat. 39.4707 Lon. -79.3388 Alt. 2590 ft.  -4 UTC
