    This is for the pair's leader, NOSS 3-1(C)/USA 160(C):
    26907 01 040C   8730 F 20050719085804000 56 35 2046100+340000 56 S+047 02       
    Seen with my 8x42, it went extremely close to epsilon Cygni,
    so that I wasn't certain if there was any space between 
    them or not.  Station 8730 is outside my apartment, 30.3086N, 
    97.7279W, 150m, quite light-polluted, although this pair was
    not difficult to see at all.
    I observed AMS 2 (10033, 77-044A) flashing brightly but was 
    not able to get a position on it.  
    Earlier, TOPEX (22076, 92-052A) was visible at +2.0 without
    binoculars for 30-40 seconds before shadow entry.
    Gravity Probe B (28230, 04-014A) was also visible at +2.0 
    for several seconds in the northeast, before culmination.
