    The sky was extremely hazy, light pollution was massive, and there was a
    few clouds.  All these elements combined to give me a limiting magnitude
    (LM) of +1.5 (that is, I could not see a star, naked eye, that was
    fainter than magnitude +1.5).
    
    My only definitive observation was:
    
    I saw the Cosmos 1076 rocket (11267) at 01:08:15.  It was two magnitudes
    brighter than predicted!
    
    So, considering the elements, I was 1-for-1.
