    For those who like rapidly flashing ones, if you haven't
    looked at Feng Yun 1D Rk (02-024C, 27431), you should 
    before it slows down a lot more.  It's already down to
    about 1.6 seconds.  Last night I was able, just barely
    for some seconds, to see its maxima without binoculars.  
    USA 160 A and C (01-040A and C, 26905, 26907) flared to 
    at least +3 last night, when they were about 50 degrees 
    up in the SW.  I was able to see them without binoculars 
    for much of the pass.
    It was the prettiest night that we have had in weeks
    (maybe months?) -- a good stretch of the Milky Way was 
    visible from the suburbs!  
    Observing site:  30.315N, 97.866W, 280m.
