         At 0856 on 18Aug from 32.867S, 151.7E I observed an object heading
    from north to south toward Scorpio's tail. I was using 10x50
    binoculars...the object was close to the limit of visibility in light
    polluted skies. CalSky shows no candidates to magnitude 8. This was
    unsurprising as, using the binoculars, stars fainter than mag 8 were
    visible. Assistance identifying this object would be appreciated.
