    We had a few clear days, but this was the first evening without snow
    warning, so I went out to Malma (5919). (Despite an anticyclone, we got snow
    forming only on our coast, from the Baltic Sea. Tomorrow clouds and snow
    could return with westerly winds, across the whole country, and milder
    temperatures)
    In -12 C, and at 7 deg altitude I found USA 161.
    It was only 14 seconds early on Mike's elset 04017.86351 from my Jan.17
    obs, so the MM at that epoch should be about 14.7239, but it was about .2
    deg high, so e is closer to .0362
    
    On the next pass I centered the wrong asterism, on the third the aurora had
    started, and was so bright I couldn't find the taget area.

    Later, I observed the decaying Molniya 3-44 at a range of 3000 km, mag about
    +8, varying, flashed once to +5. Followed it for only three degrees.
