    Just observed and captured Nanosail-D in a 62 degrees culm pass NNW-SE, but 
    brightness looked now stable in this pass1
    while I observed it wildly flashing on May 22. This is the most variable 
    object I ever observed.
    Imaging result later available via my e-mail list or via request.

    Hi all,
    Just saw and photographed Nanosail-D (10-062L), becoming quite bright 
    to mag. +1) in the southeast.
    Flashing was irregular. Took a quick look of the images: on one 10.05 
    photograph I count at least 17 flashes.
    More pertinent data later.
