    I saw milstar 3 25724 99023A 29jul 0508:11.9 UT 
    (01210.21402686) in my S, range 5500km, +6.5 vM (more or less).  
    easily seen, creeping along.  more or less ontime, seemingly
    within 2 secs of 01205 elset, but due to hardware failure
    (see my previous message re bino mounts)
    I was unable to pinpoint the RA & Dec with any
    useable certainty and was unable to cross checking my timing.
    perhaps I will have a new (used) bino mount / 
    tripod / pan head by 08aug -- about the time the 
    moon leaves the twilight / pre-midnight sky.
    missed Raduga 21 flashes in my SW due to high clouds
    at 0450UT.  and the moon was only 17 deg from this
    otherwise +13 vM sat.
