     I confirm we were three observers on August 24, 2000 02:23 UTC located at
     48.067 N, 04.133 E, to see naked-eyes NOSS 2-2 Trio as bright as est. mag +
     We were not at all expecting it, as concentrated on Jupiter sats. But NOSS
     Trio crossed so high and was so bright, you just could not avoid seeing it.
