    Thanks to Alan Pickup for the warning about Image Del r about to decay, i
    looked for it. Despite a bright twilight, with only Vega and Deneb visible
    at 1x to the East, i saw Image Del r #26114 00017B first with my 10x50s and
    then at 1X as well, mag estimated at 2 with a limiting mag at that time of
    2.5. As expected it was moving pretty fast. At 04:22:58 10 May UTC +/- 5 sec
    it was at Az 45 El 20 approx 1 deg below what i believe was Sadr in Cygnus.
    Due to the twilight i was unable to establish the star pattern but i think
    it was Sadr.
