    Thank you very much to Ted and Björn for your assistance and 
    feedback on the unid LEO!
    
    I'm quite confident of the revised prime position (not perfect, 
    but very good) because of a distinctive cup asterism that the 
    unid traversed, and I'm also certain of the time:
    
    2004-07-04 03:58:34.5 RA 21:41:51, Dec +71.2 (2000)
    
    So as not to put all of the details on the list, I've put a
    plain text file with the chronology and some commentary here:

    I omitted from it the other five unids I had that evening!  
    Two that crossed with Superbird were easy.  I haven't tried 
    yet to ID the others, and now two more nights of observing 
    have gone under the bridge.  At least I didn't have more 
    unids last night (early today, July 7)!  Twice recently I've
    had three or four unids in a cluster in less than two minutes!
    I may yet have to get those less powerful binoculars I've 
    mentioned before.
