    Mike had worked up a provisional, possible search 
    prediction, and we both looked for it but did not 
    see Brad's UNID.  Of course there are so many 
    issues in trying to pin down orbital elements of an 
    unknown UNID.
    I had a rare view -- two tumbling objects traveling
    on nearly parallel tracks within my binocular field 
    of view.  One was Haiyang 1 (02-024A, 27430) for 
    which I had a prediction.  The other was Fengyun 3A 
    Rk (08-026B, 32959).  They traveled down the edge 
    of the bowl of the Big Dipper and on to the NNW.
    I saw 30 objects without binoculars, which seems
    like it could be an unusually high number.  But it 
    was a nice, moonless evening of course.  Two of 
    them were the NOSS 3-3 pair (05-004).  We were at 
    BCRC (30.315N, 97.866W, 280m), which is not as 
    dark as it used to be.
