    Evening session after the morning session reported earlier today. Moonlight was 
    causing a bright sky background. Kosmos 1171r (80-026B) appeared as a stray 40 
    seconds before the NOSS 3-3 pair.
    
    I observed NOSS 2-2 C & D too, but didn't manage to get points on them alas. 
    There was only a short time to re-aim the telescope between this pass and the 
    NOSS 3-3 pass, and it then took me just too long to verify I had the correct 
    star field. I saw them pass the FOV but couldn't get to clock them in time.
