    This was a pre-sunrise pass, NNE to ESE, max elevation 34 degrees.  PG emerged from the shadow dimmer than the brightest I observed yesterday but similar for that same location.  
    I did not see a flare at either point passing by Vega.
    The possible flare observed yesterday near due east could not be confirmed or denied today due to thin clouds in that area.
    Unless there is another series of passes prior to re-entry, this may be my last observation of this object.
