    Just saw a nice pass of 33442 = 98-067BL, the inadvertantly
    jetissoned toolbag.  It zipped past delta Cyg at about 6.4 magnitude
    (seen with 10x50 binoculars in a clear but not completely dark sky).
    
    IOD format:
    33442 98 067BL  8840 G 20081122223312000 28                      S+064 03
    
    The "quicksat" intrinsic magnitude is approximately +7.7 (and the
    [Matson]
    "Skymap" standard magnitude is about +8.4) based on this appearance at
    a phase(astronomical) angle of 95 deg and a range of about 376km.
    
    Clear and dark skies!
