    Last few nights have been a bit foggy and turning very cold, affecting my
    observing efficacy I'm sure. Highlights have included the ISS refrigerator
    98-67BA zipping by at mag 1 and FINALLY seeing STP-Sat 1 (30775), which I
    have missed several times.

    Last night's conditions were also poor, I'll send those few in later.

    Notes:
    1) Still VERY difficult to see patterns but what a cool object to watch!
    2) Flickering - tried to time beginning of each flicker pattern
    3) Slowly evolved from one pattern to the other.
    4) Timed only flashes "on top" of flares.
    5) Some interference from patchy clouds.
    6) Seem to have gotten only half the flashes here - so dp?
