    Very clear transparent sky. The Ophiuchus globular clusters jump out of the 
    pictures, nothwithstanding the area aimed at was at 25 degrees altitude only.
    
    As already communicated, USA 81 (92-023A) briefly became bright and showed rapid 
    <<1s stroboscopic flaring to +1 while traversing the Boo-Com area just west of 
    Arcturus.
    
    The geosat Galaxy 11 (99-071A) is clearly fainter now than 2 weeks ago, but 
    still has a modest brightness peak near 22:19 UTC. Milstar 5 showed up well in 
    the pictures.
    
    I tried to capture Milstar 4 as well, but failed.
    
    Kosmos 1703 (85-108A) and SWAS (98-071A) were captured as strays, while of 
    course the commercial non-classified geosat Galaxy 11 was captured as well.
