Hi,

Observations for the night of Sunday, May 9:

0120:00-~0120:35:   I saw the International Space Station (25544).  
Brilliantly visible in naked eye, in even light-polluted skies.  Supposed to 
be at -1.2, but it never rivaled Mars (passed right by the Red Planet) .  But 
I didn't see the entire pass, either.

0126:45-0130:50:   I saw the Meteor 1-28 Rocket (10114).  About magnitude +5.

0141:00-0145:34:   I didn't see the Spot 3 Rocket (22830).  Cause: I was late 
in getting set up.

0153:00-0157:26:   I didn't see ABRIXAS (25721), nor its rocket.  Late in 
getting set up again.

0211:00-0218:00:   I didn't see USA 86 (22251) because I was merely looking 
in the wrong location!!

Overall: 48-157, 30.6%
This year: 7-29, 24.1%
Tonight: 2-5, 40%
