I had one clear night before leaving for Madeira, and saw
that 9607201 was on time (faint, steady) but I was not at
home and had no stopwatch available.
On Feb.27 I observed it at 19:44:46.6 UT, RA 06.26 Decl. +53.7
magnitude 6 steady, about 19 sec.late, 2 degrees higher in the
west than predicted.

By chance, and later identified, I observed 
75064A #08026 (Meteor) at magn.7-8 20:22 (5.4 predicted!) , and
96017A #23827 (IRS B3) at magn.6   20:58 (predicted mag.+7.9!)

I failed to see 92083A #22251 (USA-86) 22:01-22:13 using these elsets:
