    After a full month of being clouded out, a clear sky at last!
    
    91-017A was some 0.2s late and 0.1 deg off-track. 97-064A was on-time and on-track.
    
    On the image, 91-017A can be seen to have a shallow brightness peak at about 
    20:12:55 UTC. I dare not call it a "flare" as it is maybe a half magnitude 
    increase only.
