    This is futile, but I'll post it anyway.  
    Ney Museum site: 30.307N, 97.727W, 150m.
    I tried unsuccessfully to spot the NOSS 3-4 Centaur.
    After that, while waiting for the NOSS 3-4 payloads, a 
    bright west-to-east object went very roughly about a 
    quarter to possibly one-half degree north of Spica 
    (alpha VIR), or about RA 13:25.2, Dec. -10.9 [2000], 
    at 2:19:01.5.  Findsat did NOT find a match.  Based on 
    its appearance, at the time I thought it was a Long 
    March.  It was varying slowly from about +3.0 to +4.0 
    maybe.  I was using my 12x60.  This was before the Sun 
    had reached ten degrees below the horizon.
    I really don't think it could have been the NOSS 3-4 
    Centaur, because the direction was right-to-left, not
    upper right-to-lower left.  Its direction was more
    horizontal than the NOSS 3-4 payloads a few minutes
    Regarding the unidentified one following AMS 1 several 
    nights ago, I very much appreciate receiving a private 
    message from someone who reported that he had seen it 
    on two different evenings.  Circumstances have not yet
    worked out for me to try to see it again.
