    In looking for unknown 90040 I saw two for which I'm 
    not getting good matches.  The first one was north 
    of the predicted track and too high (didn't go into 
    the Earth's shadow) compared to the predictions for 
    90040.  It was varying.  The date is 2 June 2008 UTC.

    The second one was south of the predicted track and 
    too faint but did go into the Earth's shadow as 
    expected.  It seemed to be steady.

    I was at the house of friends a couple of miles or 
    so north of BCRC, which is at 30.315N, 97.866W, 280m.
    The previous two evenings the NOSS 2-1 trio were 
    visible without magnification -- very neat!  A week
    or so ago one of the NOSS 3 pairs flared to -2.
