    Watched a nice 70 degree elevation pass around 01:10 UT (30 Nov).
    
    Negative magnitude around the zenith then continued watching in
    binoculars.  It reddened nicely as it entered the shadow and was
    visible for another minute (around 01:12:25 UT).  This was about
    one minute after shadow entry.
    
    Of course this required binoculars in the shadow.
