    Another fine clear evening. Only 97-064A was willing to be captured on image 
    however. I visually observed IGS 1A as well at 21:45 UTC but it remained too 
    faint for the camera. IGS 1B remained too faint for the eye as well as the camera.
    
    97-064 a "flared" very modestly (short duration 0.5 mag increase or so only) at 
    21:30:38 UTC, in accordance with a prediction by Phil Masding. Another potential 
    flare moment at 23:12:35 UTC however went by without anything notable happening.
