    Hi all,
    
    This marvelous aurora watching night began with a nice observation of Starshine 
    3. For once, we had a favorable pass (phase angle) to the northeast and saw 3 
    flashes of mag. 1, 2 and 1 at about 00:26:27, 00:26:40 and 00:27:13 UTC. All 
    were of about 3/4 second duration and easy to see. No binoculars are needed for 
    the observation, just watch the general area of the sky where the satellite is.
