at 01:26:32 UT on 1 Dec 98, it was seen in 7x50 binocs
approximately 0.1 degree EAST of predicted path and 
15 seconds early.

A few minutes before, it transited the moon.  I failed 
to see it against the sunlit portion and the unlit portion
of the moon was very slender.  Transit prediction courtesy
of Skymap.

Alan's elsets are providing excellent predictions.
