    Skipped RMCC due to wind, but had great luck even in downtown Tulsa! Not to disparage LEOs, but I wanted to post these first. I'll get to those next.
    
    27938 (USA 171 r/b) was 56s early on 13.6d elements, 90077 94s early on 26d elements. All visual, so I assigned 0.5s uncertainty on geos.
    
    Saw an UNID moving nearly parallel to 90077 but less inclined and much slower. Position was 5h33m -19 at 2:07:06 UT, within 1/2 deg E of 90077, and dimmer at about 10th mag. 90077 seemed to be 94s early on 26d elements. Very easy because it passed right through a neat asterism in Lepus.
    
    USA 202 r/b (33491) was easy - I tend to agree with Greg (sorry Kevin) but it helped that it "hit" Eta Orionis and then went right north of Sigma, a beautiful multiple star. Twice I thought a saw a 12m flash less than a degree ahead of it - has anyone seen or imaged such a thing? Could it be a piece of debris traveling with the r/b?
    
    USA 200 (32706) was fairly easy and steady to me at about 10.5m - first time I've seen it or any of the Trumpets...so I was quite happy.
