    Had hopes for more than this tonight, but got clouded out before the 09-023B and 
    01-044A passes that should happen around the time I type this mail, alas.
    
    Captured 05-042A in twilight (sun 7 degrees below horizon) during a west pass. 
    Started nice and bright and fast, then gradually faded. It was 0.3s late 
    relative to Ted's elset 09197.84956903
