    Gorizont 16 (19397) -- seen as unid (didn't have geosynch 
    predictions)

    Iridium 95 "?" (02-005D, 27375) flared on time but MMA flare was 
    much brighter than predicted while solar panel flare about right.  
    This one's flares were only a minute or two after those from 
    Iridium 32 (97-051B, 24945)
    
    January 8 UTC: Comet C/2004 Q2 (Machholz) was faintly visible 
    without magnification.
    
    Location for above was BCRC, 30.315N, 97.866W, 280m; location
    for below was Ney Museum site, 30.307N, 97.727W, 150m.
    
    TDF 2 (20705) -- fast, bright double maxima but faded fast 
    (Flashes maybe 20-25 minutes later each night?  Got predictions
    for it and Superbird A after going home from BCRC.)
    90- 63 A 05-01-08 03:43:28   EC  176.8 0.2   8 22.11  +4.5->i some doubles
