    This evening is another pass of ETS/Kiku 6 (23230, 94-56A) over 
    the USA.  The last two passes, I've observed two brief, separate 
    episodes of one-power flashes to as bright as about +0 when it 
    was somewhere in the azimuth range of about 160 to 210 as seen
    from here.
    
    Below are Highfly UTC predictions for a central USA location 
    (40N, 95W).  Obviously they are just meant as a rough general
    guide to this pass.
    
     40.000  95.000 1000.   Central USA              2000  5.0 12
