    Another clear evening after a cloudy day. Catched a KH besides two Lacrosses.
    
    The KH was USA 129 (96-072A). It appears as two rather faint trails on two 
    images: the starting point on the first trail is beind the building. I have it 
    running 0.7s early.
    
    Lacrosse 2 (91-017A) was as much as 1.5s early and 0.1 degree off in cross-track.
    
    Lacrosse 3 (97-064A) by contrast was pretty much on-time and on-track. It made a 
    nice bright trail. It briefly and modestly flared up to maybe +1.5 at about 
    19:49:45 UTC, just before shadow entry.
