There were several passes from the early Noss 71-110 cluster visible here.
I tried to observe all three satellites at different passes but only saw
71-110D very briefly mag 8 close to alpha UMA at 20:12:28 UTC.

By coincidence, I saw Landsat 5(84-21A), mag +2.  It is definately varying
with approx. 15s.  Can someone confirm this ? My previous obs back in 1994
says it was also varying.
