    Happy New Year! May God bless us all in the coming year (and may we have plenty of clear skies!)
    
    Too cold to go to country, so I stayed home and tried 16295, 8482, 29240, 90075, 96011, 96049, 96094 with 12" Dob, as they passed easy to fond stars in Orion. Didn't see ANY of them. Not a great start for 2009 but the light pollution here is bad, and I guess the phase angles were not in my favor. Did see 21640 pass through at a range of 6159 miles, but was expecting 21805 instead (also not seen).
    
    Well, off to watch the ball drop. None of these are corrected for the leap second, as I set my watch at 23:00 UT:
