    NOTES:
    --------
    (1) Nice evening but humidity very high - did not seem to cause any
        problems. Transparency good but seeing could hav been better- about
        18-21 arc seconds.
    
    (2) NROL-15 #38528 slowly getting higher in eastern sky - be interesting
        to see how far west it drifts.
    
    (3) Unknown geostationary found close to MENTOR 2. No obvious match to
        anything.
    
    (4) Satellites with magnitudes done with APEX, rest measured manually.
