    Very clear with a W wind, so the large Moon high in the SW didn't affect 
    observing too much.
    
    The previous evening (December 28) I saw Comet Machholz by accident when 
    searching for 87-43E. Using out of focus binocs I estimated the mag as +5.6.
    
    It was funny to see 96-29F (TiPS) with the tether horizontal at the second 
    position.
    
    I saw all three Lacrosses within 20 minutes in a bright dawn sky - the accuracy 
    of the positions is reduced because there were few reference stars.
    
    I was surprised to see Mercury shining clearly to the naked eye close to Venus 
    at 07:15 UT, and it was still visible at 07:30 in a crystal-clear with a very 
    favourable horizon.
    
    David.
