Observed Cosmos 2333 Rk (96-51B, #24298, morning) and UHF F1 Rk (93-15B, 
#22564, evening).  I got Jim Varney's ppasinp.exe program, and it does
help.  Still, it will be even easier when I'm better at writing it all 
down more coherently in the field.    (Thanks again to those who 
responded so kindly to my complaint about trying to do use the flash 
report format a few weeks ago!)

96- 51 B 97-11-16 12:04      EdC 194.0 0.2  50  3.880 mag 2->3.5?(1-pwr)
93- 15 B 97-11-17 01:40      EdC 137.0 0.5   8 17.1   mag 2->inv* (1-pwr)

*Note that as 93-15B's phase angle increased significantly after its
culmination, it became visible (+3.5) between maxima, even though its 
range was increasing.  On the other hand, its maxima were brighter 
(+1.5?) before culmination, I guess because its range was smaller.

96-51B was visible between maxima throughout its pass.

These were observed from Mt. Bonnell, Austin, Texas -- 30.321, -97.773, 
274m.
