    Nice clear evening but I had a bit of bad luck. Cold (near zero) and a low 
    battery made my laser aim disfunction. Result was that my camera wasn't always 
    that carefully pointed. This made me miss a fine -3 flare from 96-072A and also 
    a HEO object.
    
    96-072A slowly flared to -3 peaking at about 19:46:42 UTC. Only the last degree 
    of the track just made it into the image...
