    First attempt to use Obsentry.  Station 8730 is outside my 
    apartment: 30.3086N, 97.7279W, 150m.  I think that the 
    position is pretty good, 50% split between two stars.  The 
    elset age was 23 days.  I'm sure that it has a regular 
    (but slow) flash period but watched it for such a short 
    arc that I report "I".  Maybe I should have left that off?
    NOSS 3-1 Rk in IOD format --
    26906 01 040B   8730 G 20050714091923600 17 15 1954000+403000 17 I+045 10       
    A few minutes later I saw USA 81 (21949, 92-023A) flashing 
    vigorously (sparkling) to at least +2.0 if not +1.5 at about 
    9:25:25-40 (roughly 21:00, +30, in eastern Cygnus) but didn't 
    manage to get a position on it.
    Wednesday evening was clouded out.
    Of course I'm hoping for a soon and safely completed Space 
    Shuttle Discovery launch and mission!
