    We observed the same pass (emerging from shadow at 06:25.6 UTC low (20
    degrees)
    in the NNE, but only saw a single bright (e.g., like Capella) object even
    with
    7x50 and 10x50 binoculars.  Maybe we'll have better luck at the next pass
    (08:00 UTC) although this one will be even lower (e.g. 13 degrees maximum
    elevation)
    in the NNW.
    
    Clear and dark skies!
