    Glad to be home, where I know to look for it just above the Cottonwood tree.
    West of previous asterism but still easily found. Once I got used to it
    again, positions are fair.
    #5 flash preceded by bright Taurid gave impression of it "reflashing" after
    meteor had burned out!
    Flaring "up" is my impression that flare glint moved northward during event
    instead of being "centered" - anyone else ever notice this?
    
    For 11/18/05 (UT):
    Flash	Time UT	Mag	Inst	RA	Dec	Cond	Notes
    1	2:51:39	+1	1x	-	-	E
