Hi Rob, Ed & all,

         14.78FF          9.9492       52.9

I observed it for three and a half minutes and have yet to
analyze the timed/tape data for many of the minor flashes.
Again it was visible naked eye from 40 degrees elevation and
up.  Listed above are most of the major flashes.

To Ed Cannon- I was wondering what happened to NOSS 2-3 Rk,
    After noting a bright pass of ISS,  I scanned for the NOSS rk
predicted
    here at mag 4.5 and about 10 degrees elevation where I had a good
    view but was unable to acquire it.

To Rob,  Got the New Skymap and look forward to checking it out.
