    Great few days of astronomy between flooding rains. Last night was terrible,
    but managed to see 90-110G zooming by about 250 miles above me even through
    low patchy clouds.
    
    I did not include classfd.tle reports this or the last few times because
    they are no longer timely. Simply been too busy to get them in the next
    morning.

    Notes:
    1) Beautiful flare next to Venus and crescent moon in conjunction.
    2) Some untimed +6 mag flashes.
    3) Too fast to time in terrible conditions - appeared to be about 1s period.
    4) Seen as UNID while tracking 01-40B.
    5) Only one cycle then lost in trees.
