    Typical spring night - no set up due to clouds. They cleared; saw a few LEOs and variables. Now it was late enough to set up scope for asteroid occultation [(1741) Giclas Derek, and it was negative here]. So, since I've set up, might as well look for highfly objects. Tried for:
    
    13637 23468 20205 90040 36108 27785 with no luck (city skies?)
    
    and finally got 28546 = nice and easy and variable just as clouds poured in! I put the scope up and noticed the clear skies afterwards. I lay down for an hour and went out to see X-37B in gaps in the fast moving low cloud. Its position should be ok, despite the terrible conditions. Very easy and bright.
