    This was from last Saturday evening.  I made a mistake when I tried to send it
    the first time.
    
    This was a complete surprise -- first object seen of the session, while looking
    for an Iridium.

    dec roughly -3.6; (Thank you to Mike M. for identifying it.)
    
    PPAS:
    10- 56 A 13-05-04 02:08:37   EAC 179.8 0.3  53  3.39 +5.0->inv fading
    
    Later:
