    sky had some dew/haze and some moonbeams, but not too
    bad (better than last night) but cosmos 2282 does seem
    to be fading from here, while Rob saw it ok last night,
    perhaps one of the cone analysts can compute why so...
    I started at 0249 ut and it took me a while to acquire
    the flashes, occasional +5, but mostly +6, +7 & not seen,
    ie, I did not see all 23, a few were inv, looked intermittently,
    did not see it, looked intently around 0400 ut no flashes
    seen, ref stars ok, seeing at least into the +7s with binos.
    so I may stop looking for awhile.
    it is up for awhile, I think it moves overhead my lon beginning
    of november, any chance the cone will reorient itself
    in my direction then, or between now and then, or does the
    cone not return until next rev which could be quite awhile,
    or it just depends on the cone which could vary ... ???
