    Notes:
    -------------
    (1) Observation reported today of #24753 is a correction of yesterdays
        report where I had the minutes incorrect. Thanks to Scott for spotting
        this.
    
    (2) KH9-18 appeared essentially steady part of the pass tracked - rather
        faint!
    
    (3) #90027 flared to mag +2.5 for a few seconds just after passing
        culmination.
    
    Cheers
    Greg
