    Nice very clear sky, but a fat moon. While photographing 96-072A a brilliant 
    mag. -5 meteor, slow, droplet-form, bright orange and fragmenting, > 4s 
    duration, sailed across the sky (alas outside the camera field) at 21:07:35 UTC. 
    A beauty!
    
    05-042A briefly flared inbetween two images.
