    I missed a high transit high northeast probably by the great difference between
    predicted and actual transit time. May be the many cirrusclouds did not help me
    much either. I applied Mike's TLE with epoch 11144.95092816
    At next pass of 10062L, I noticed the object was some minutes early.
    Unfortunately I did not record a location/time combination.
    I picked it up at 23:49:30 somewhere between
    - del Leo (Zosma) and
    - the Leo (Chertan).
    Could not get synchronised with the fast flashes.
    Later when the flashpattern became more regular I reattempted a flash time
    determination. Object was very easy near star gam Vir (Porrima).
    Here is my PPAS-records:
