    17' off-track !? Predicted almost dead-on the +3.58m star next to iota UMa, 
    but I estimated 1/9 their distance.
    Used my 7*30 "headset".

    I looked for USA 3 soon after, and IGS 1A near beta UMa. Within 7 degrees I 
    saw only alpha, and the star 3 degrees below right, but I saw briefly a 
    "bright star" at the lower left in my FOV, where there is none.
    And I didn't time it.
