    I got dmsp 23233 tonight, 
    I saw the same thing as last night, the sat 
    was lower in el by about the same amount.   it was obvious tonight as 
    it was predicted between (above) +6.7 star and (below) a +5.8 and it came
    in below the +6.7 and between a +7 underneath it, should
    be good points.  in J2000

    usa 129 did a transit, apparent 0 deg conjunction, from here on
    HP 111795 aka HD 214665 aka SAO 34651 at my ~037+26
    this transit was predicted in the trak from the elset
    
    looked long and hard for alexis 22638 circa 02:47 ut for 3 min before and after prediction
    but never saw it.  assume it was too faint for my location as predicted at +7.8,
    I was seeing stars fainter than that but mike tells me you might not see
    a sat at similar faint mag.  sky had hazy glow quality, more in W than in the NE.
    
    adios
