    In accordance with the by-laws of our Astronomy Club, Members Only Observing 
    Night (M.O.O.N.) started clear and quickly clouded up. I didn't go this time, 
    having seen this movie many times before.
    
    ETS-6 (23230) was not seen flashing, but by then (0:45UT), the conditions had 
    degraded to T (terrible) low in the east. Even the Iridium 76 flare (25432) that 
    was seen at 0:49 at mag 0 over by Fomalhaut, both star and sat were hard to see 
    naked eye. Proba 2 (36037,9-59B) passed just before SACI-1 (25941,99-57B) and 
    seemed a bit variable.
