    When I am back at home late and cannot prepare a night of satellite
    observing I sometimes relax: just sit and look at the sky and pick up a lot
    of bright satellites of which I read the time and magnitude on my voice
    recorder.
    Following list contains PNAS-observations of which most are those of
    my relaxed form of observing. Not all found objects are listed.
    But a lot of time is needed to identify those objects afterwards.
    
    As in my previous reports the time in the comment part is the actual
    time of observation followed by the right ascension and declination in
    format hhmmsdd in which
    hhmm is the right ascension in hours and minutes
    s is the sign of the declination
    dd is the declination in degrees.

    Concerns 62- 25 A:
    Is it amazing to see an old TIROS as such a bright object for a short while?
    There was no other object moving in the same direction and same location
    at that time, so I am quite confident this is the right object.
    
    Some old NOSS-objects can sometimes be bright, look at 77-112E
