    Actually, #14 demonstrates a mistake.  Björn Gimle caught
    it, and due to cloudy nights the times are still in my
    stopwatch's memory, and it's definitely 11.33, not 15.33
    seconds!  (One main reason I transcribe both "lap" and
    elapsed time is as a way to check for errors.  Looks like
    it works.)  Maybe I picked up the "15" from the elapsed
    time of 15:52.70 since I had started the stopwatch.  The
    readout is not hard to read.
    
    I'm afraid that it's going to be cloudy here again tonight.
    
    Congrats to those who saw the Jawsat launch and/or are 
    getting to see the Jawsat objects in orbit!
