    As a follow-up to my obs posting, I noticed that the NOSS 2-3 C (96-029D) 
    was considerably brighter than the others in the trio.  I estimated its 
    brightness to be +4, whereas the others were mag +8 at best on a 41-degree 
    altitude pass to my NE.
    Although I recorded its brightness as steady (code S on the IOD format) I 
    lost it just after the moment of capturing the point as I was waiting for 
    the others to pass through the star field.  I guess it faded quickly and 
    that I captured it at a flare.  A quick check back on the SeeSat archive 
    suggests this is normal behaviour for this object.
