    I was lucky to observe 09052C again at low elevation, as it passed about 0.4
    deg below Eta Ursa Majoris:
    
    35939 09 052C   2701 B 20100208233923680 17 25 1348360+485619 68  
    
    IOD format: http://www.satobs.org/position/IODformat.html
    
    Site 2701: 43.68764 N, 79.39243 W, 230 m
    
    I followed it for at least 30 s before losing it, but it passed no other
    star I could see.
    
    This must be the lowest elevation position I have ever reported, about 5.6
    deg.
    
    It was about 36 s early relative the elements I posted yesterday. Solar flux
    rose for the 4th consecutive day, to 96.
    
    Updated elements to follow later tonight, or tomorrow.
