    The sky was clear for a short time, so I went looking for stuff.
    I came across a nice flashing sat, problem is video that was being recorded wasn't, my computer acted up. I still have a log of where I was pointed, now to try and fiqure out what the sat was, it gave some bright flashes, won't be suprised if it was a iridium.
    I had stopped at area of sky, and shortly later, a nice flashing sat passed by. It was a peice of DMSP 18 deb, catalog number = 36100. Never know what I'll see.
    Didn't flash brightly for long, it seems. It had passed across the feild of view, and so when I went to find and follow it, I couldn't seem to see it any longer. Will have to look at it, another night.
    That's it, the clouds showed up.
