Between 11:36:09 and 11:37:24 UT on February 16, 1998 I saw 3 objects.
All were steady in brightness ( mag 6.5), and moving past Betelguese.
47.3 seconds between first two, and 27.2 seconds between second and
third. From the elements posted on Alan Pickup's select page., I think
this was C then B and then A or D[ as designated on that page.
C was about 12seconds early, while B and A/D some 15 seconds late.
