    On 9/7/02 01.23.10 UTC saw a short duration, my viewing time was 7 seconds
    and I may have missed some visibility at the start, flare of -2 mag max
    while looking between epsilon cygnus and zeta cyg unaided eye. #04237 was id
    using IDSat and Skymap. The alldat.tle file has it called OPS 7613 PL4
    Also observed the Noss 2-3 trips on a long pass of 2 and 1/2 minutes and was
    able to see the pattern change where the lead #23862 pulled almost a full
    degree ahead during the pass. I haven't in the past seen such a long pass to
    see this pattern change. Seen from 02.51.00 to 02.53.20 utc when lead heads
    into shadow.
    The prior night saw an unknown in the binoc view while watching Cosmos 2344r
    at 01.02.37 UTC and was able to id it as #12171 / #78026L
    Several very nice clear nights and mornings with many other obs including
    Comets #25175 #98011A for a first time and in the morning a couple of times
    before work have seen ISS and one morning saw Iridium 19 flare to almost -7
    Lat 39.4697 Lon -79.3393  Alt 2573 ft  -4 UTC
