    Observations of yesterday evening. Thin clouds and moonlight made for not quite 
    perfect conditions.
    
    FIA Radar 2 (12-014A) was 33s late relative to an only 2-day-old elset.
    
    The 96-072A trails were faint on the images: point #2 (20:49:42.3) might be 
    slightly off as the trail end was somewhat ambiguous.
    
    96-072A briefly flared to mag. 0 near 20:49:50.5 UTC.
    
    I missed IGS 1B, probably because it was many minutes early and passed while I 
    was photographing FIA Radar 2. I also failed to see USA 186.
