    I looked hard for ETS 6 last night off and on from 
    about 3:00 to 5:40 UTC, with no success.  The weather 
    was very nice.
    
    Correction:  On the flashing object (maybe ETS 6?) seen 
    from Boulder, Colorado, the time was 5:00-6:00 UTC, not 
    4:00-5:00 (22:00-23:00 Mountain Standard Time).  I 
    realized this last night as I was wondering why I could 
    not see ETS 6.  I guess its flash path is still north 
    of here (?).
    
    Superbird A -- the first couple of flashes I saw were 
    bright, but it faded rapidly to invisibility.  I'm glad 
    I looked earlier than I thought I needed to.  PPAS 
    report:
    
    94- 56 A 02-11-07 03:17:33.3 EC  113.0 0.2  10 11.30  
    
    Cosmos 2282 wasn't bright enough for my binoculars, 
    from in town.  I couldn't find a couple of others I
    tried for, also.
    
    Observing site was 30.307N, 97.727W, 150m.
    
    Before leaving UT Austin campus last night I saw Shi
    Jian 4 Rk (22997, 94-010C) pretty easily one-power.
