    While visiting Oklahoma City on January 14 two observations were made:
    
    Shenzou 2 was seen low in the northwest and was in fact 3 minutes late at
    0121UT. It appeared at magnitude +5 brightening to +4.2 before quickly
    entering the earth's shadow.
    
    Iridium 2 (which had failed while moving between orbit planes) was observed
    at 0044 UT as a faint object of magnitude +5.5 to 7 with no discernible
    period. This was a post-sunset pass low in the eastern sky.
