    After a stormy night the dawn sky was blown clear (albeit with periodic fields 
    of clouds) so I could do some morning twilight observations.
    
    I have a mentally not entirely sound neighbour, and I unintendedly startled her 
    when she came out of her house (muttering in herself as always) and saw me on 
    the courtyard with my telescope. She went into a panicky fit as a result. This 
    was just as I was about to catch 07-027A. The resulting melée and the added 
    unexpected appearance of 88-078A as a "stray" only 11 seconds before 07-027A 
    make me suggest to use the 07-027A point with some caution (by the time of 
    07-027C I should have regained my composure).
    
    I have 07-027A 3.4s early and 07-027C 1.1s early relative to Mikes 08019 elsets. 
    USA 32 was only 0.7s late with regard to a 77 days old elset.
