    Started tracking TiPS  #23937 at Albireo (beta) in Cygnus using 8" dobs with
    40mm eyepiece at approx 23.40.32 UT and followed for about 2 minutes when I
    lost it in trees. I was able to see Ralph and Norton (don't know which was
    which) and the tether is so unique that I need to see it again. In my
    inverted fov the top sat flashed twice shortly before going into trees, and
    I'll guess the bigger of the 2 would be Ralph and would also guess it would
    probably be the flasher. No good points on this or on other obs.
    This is one to see with a telescope, my first time tonite and it was very
    impressive. Absolutely, positively must do again.
    Temp -2 C with snow on ground and very windy, put dobs away after had chance
    to see Saturn with Crab Nebula  48 minutes away come above trees.
