    In case anyone wants to see zero magnitude flashes 
    from Telstar 401 (93-077A, 22927), past experience has 
    been that it was roughly about 15 minutes earlier each 
    night.  You just have to watch the right spot at about 
    the right time for two minutes.  The last three nights 
    I've seen it during these time periods:
    Nov 25:  3:26:36 - 3:34:09 UTC
    Nov 26:  3:16:54 - 3:26:19 (interrupted by cloud)
    Nov 27:  3:02:32 - 3:08:11 (interrupted by Superbird A)
    Superbird A (89-041A, 20040) on Nov 27 UTC (about a 
    minute later each night):  3:08:40 - 3:15:58.
    No sign of Eutelsat 2 or Tele-X or a few others.
    Ney Museum grounds: 30.307N, 97.727W, 150m.
    Hope someone can ID Jay's UNID.
    To whom it may concern:  Happy Thanksgiving!
