    Finally a clear sky! I had to fight a rusty observer, especially with
    satellite timings and finding Mercury before it got too low. Note 22519 (USA
    89 r/b) was seen, but forgot to hit s/w, so I am relying on my audible count
    resulting in 0.5s accuracy. I had just been distracted by 04-17B passing and
    flaring in telescope field. NOSS 2-2 (A) was very difficult in the city,
    even in ETX-125 telescope at 47X, and I did not report the unreliable
    points. 
    
    A nice surprise was Beidou M1 r/b (31116), a nice golden 5th magnitude,
    slowly varying over a period of about a minute. I'll revisit it and check
    period. 81-56A was obviously varying to naked eye, but lost in trees too
    soon - will also revisit.
