    This was from the Ney Museum location.  The sky was very
    clear after the passage of a cold front, and the Moon was 
    farther away in the sky, so I may have seen one more cycle 
    than last night.  It was roughly RA 23:20-40, Dec -13.

    Due to a comedy of errors, I actually went to observe it
    without any predictions -- just went from where it was
    the previous night.  It's obviously very helpful to use
    8-degree FOV binoculars in such a situation.
