Just saw TIPS at 0201 UT, 27 Oct 97 for the first time in 
a LONG time.   Was very faint in 7x50 binocs.  Noticed a 
few flashes/glints and one good one to maybe 6th magnitude.
I think it was the lower mass.    Seemed to be some variations
in the tether at times.

Not as bright as the delta tether of a few years ago but still
