    2 nights ago (at Tulsa2) I saw 2 variable objects naked eye that met at Polaris after parallel path, 10961 (Cosmos 1023) and 11691 (Kosmos-1156), which was a new satellite to me. I agree, that is a great view!

    Seen here last night, even in bad conditions, must've been flaring or hit a hole in clouds.

    Tulsa Astronomy club site (TULSA2), is next to a building where we have a key to turn off the lights. Vandals constantly bother our building and that one, to the point where Jul 2 night the doors were welded shut, and I couldn't turn out the lights. Its always something...but it was still a great night - blocked the lights with my car as best I could.
    PPAS later. Also saw a 3 UNID pairs following each other. One was NOSS 2-2 (only C&D, see below), Topex (22076) and one of the Jason satellites, and 25616 (ROCSAT 1) and another, 27.5 behind it. I hate to use the UNID word again, but I can't ID this second one.
