    Second batch of Friday night: the GEO objects. Clear sky, some moonlight early 
    in the evening, some upcoming haze late in the evening.
    
    I used the Zeiss 2.8/180 mm on USA 227 and the SamYang 1.4/85 mm on the rest of 
    the objects. All of the targets were situated in or around Orion, Milstar 5 
    passing just north of the Orion nebula in the imagery.
    
    Intelsat 4 flared brightly near 18:58:30 UT.
