Yesterday, I had 100% thick clouds during the passes of the new Iridiums.

>I also saw an UNID meeting it near 21:39:40 UT, mag.+7.
>Direction of motion 70-80 deg, speed 4 sec/degree ?, appr.pos.
>18h 40m  +50   (March 28)

This was Iridium 5, #24795 !

The reason I am slow at ID-ing now, is that my notebook 486 video stopped
working, and I'm running our old 386 with no math chip, making alldat.tle
an overnight job.

My previous UNIDs:

980326 21:08 UT C*2333 rk #24298
980323 21:21 UT C*2082 rk #20625
980323 19:08 UT C*1842    #17911
