Due to the bad orbit, it was placed in, so never get's very high off the horizon, I had plenty of stuff like tree's, houses to block my view.

But last night, it finally passed, where I could see it. Didn't use the time inserter, as I had to be in the front yard to see it, and house is wired so, I can contol the mount from the back yard.

It passed by the following bright star

the Oph

J2000 position at current date (proper motion included):
Right ascension: 17h22m00.5680s
Declination: -24 59' 58.734"

Passed by at 1:37 utc ( Aug 8 )
