    Was out in my back yard tonight performing a combination of Kung Fu and
    Karate moves on a cloud of suicidal mosquitoes that had laid claim to my
    head and neck when I saw object B emerge from the earth's shadow high in the
    sky.  I don't have any magnitude estimates but can say that in my night
    scope it was bright and unwavering. It was also an easy naked eye target.
    
    Later Object E emerged and was flashing to naked eye visibility every few
    seconds.  Between flashes it occasionally faded to the point of near
    invisibility even in my night scope.
    
    Finally, I watched Objects C and D moving together across the sky only a few
    degrees apart.  Object D was quite faint in my scope and object C was about
    two magnitudes brighter.
    
    Object E is probably the only one I will be willing to stand to watch for
    from now on.  zzzzzzzzzz slap!
