    Last night waited all night for unaided visual geosat
    flares. Finally saw two at 0734UT and 0814UT at the
    same coordinates; RA: 1 hr 17 min, DEC: -5.0 (made a
    perfect 30-60-90 triangle with Eta and Theta Cetus).
    Both flared to about 3.0, had 2min ramp up and 2min
    ramp down in brightness. Don't know satellite id's.
    Location Plano TX, USA +33.06946(N), -96.76807(W)
    Central Daylight Time (GMT - 5 ), 700 ft. MSL
