    After a few nights, observed 90007/00653A last night with
    my 10x50 binoculars from 2:48:59 to 3:04:02 (and might have 
    been able to observe it another minute or two but was 
    distracted by NOAA 7).  At least two of the 90007/00653A 
    flashes were one power, about +3.5 to +4.0 (obviously seen 
    before moonrise).  Sure hope someone east of here can find 
    it before too long!  It seems to be a little less than five 
    minutes earlier each night, and just a little bit farther 
    west.  Its elements are in the mccants.tle file.
    NOAA 7 and SPOT 3 did some very nice one-power flashes.
    Observing location:  30.314N, 97.866W, 280m.
