    Above observed with 8 inch dobs 40mm eyepiece (1.4 fov) between stars to
    right ( my inverted fov) of alpha leo 2/10 the distance from the 2nd star
    toward the 3rd. ObsReduce used to produce the result in IOD format.
    At 02.03.00 an unknown was seen 1x at pi herc heading north. Using Idsat I
    find 04044B as a match. A first sighting for me.
    Three minutes later when ready for next obs rain starts and I quickly move
    telescope into garage. I had hoped for a longer clearing.
    Lat. 39.4707 Lon. -79.3388 Alt. 2753 ft. -4 UTC

    I've tried to send this several times and it gets returned, maybe my problem
    will be fixed this time.
