    Skies cleared after Tulsa club public Mars watch was clouded out. Tried flaring geosats with 20 x 80s with great success, several also seen naked eye despite moon. Also got AEHF with it, but residuals are high. I'll identify geosats and PPAS later.
    
    What I've reported as 38070 was quite off track and very late, certainly not the object I thought I saw the other night (which must've been an error). However, I cannot find anything else nearby, except the trio of Echostar 7 (27378), Echostar 14 (36499), and Anik F-3 (31102) which were seen to the north nearby. Residuals are bad, but it was easily seen, just had poor appulses. I picked the best one and show the details for it. Lost to shadow at 7:45:44.
