Even the earlier pass was low in the SSW for me. I saw it in the
twilight sky, Sun at -7.7, Bion 11 C below the belt of Orion,
close to zeta and the same magnitude (2.0 !)

Unfortunately, I had my stopwatch upside down and pressed STOP instead of LAP.
I wished they'd make stopwatches that always recorded the "absolute" time,
and you could select at RECALL time which one to use as START !
