    A few weeks after our worst ice storm ever broke our tree and crushed my
    truck, it was 75 F and clear last night (albeit with a 30 mph wind). As Will
    Rogers said of his home state, "If you don't like the weather in Oklahoma,
    wait a few minutes." Setting up behind the Astronomy Club of Tulsa
    Observatory, I was able to see 2 comets naked eye, and several satellites
    (below). Iridium 82 (25467) flare at 0:50:24 was unexpected (not predicted
    by H-A) and easily the brightest I've ever seen, at least -10 magnitude! I
    wonder if mirrors have changed? This was noticeably brighter, even allowing
    for clear country skies, and I have seen this bird flare at this location
    before.
    
    USA 193 about 1s early, "D" component of NOSS 2-3 0.8s late and still MUCH
    brighter than other 2. Does anyone know why? NOSS 3-4 pair are now close
    enough to enjoy comfortably as a pair, at 1x in the country.
