    Another clear night. I slept two hours between the obs of 1992- 30 J
    and 1992-  8 B.
    Saw 1986- 17 A, MIR, on May 11th at 20:24 UT and May 12th at 20:57,
    both times S, -1.
    When starting the observations it was still too bright to see
    1999- 39 B; could pick up 1994- 77 B because it passed close to
    Arcturus. The second pass of 2000- 06 B was just visible in the
    morning sky.
