    At 00.34.20 UTC an unknown was in fov with Milstar 3. Id'd as following:
    CCE 1 r          7.0  1.4  0.0  6.2 d
    1 15202U 84088D   05007.30854573  .00000066  00000-0  27331-7 0   104
    2 15202  28.9096 319.0926 1997865 195.7089 157.1304 10.79235130802518
    
    I saw several 1x unknowns while looking at comet, just barely visible with
    the unaided eye. Will later try to id these unknowns, but I don't expect
    another first sighting like the one above.
    
    Also saw ISS tonight go into shadow high in the sky at 23.50.13 UTC Jan 9,
    my first sighting since December 1, 2004.
    
    Iridium 31 flared to at least -5 magnitude with its left antenna at
    23.36.01, and then 35 seconds later had the solar panel flare to -2 mag.
    
    Lat. 39.4707 Lon. -79.3388 Alt. 2753 ft. -5
