    In December I accidentally saw Cosmos 1030 (78-083A, 11015),
    an Oko, flashing as it went toward the southeast in our SSW,
    and we were able to see it on several evenings, as its time
    and track were very nearly synchronous.  Just a little while 
    ago I found a very nice photo of it that was taken in 
    November 1999 by a minor planet observer:

    That and two or three others photos have appeared in the MPML 
    thread about the VFMO that I mentioned yesterday.  By the 
    way, the unid was observed again in the same field the next 
    night, about five minutes earlier than the previous night.
    
    Looks like we may have clouds here for four or five nights.
