    Watched for flaring geosats low in east on a perfect clear night, but none
    seen in 12x70 binoculars (9 mag limit, even in city, due to exceptionally
    clear skies). Watched until 3:00 UT. OT saw Mercury naked eye very low in
    west after finding it in same binocs.
    
    07-32 B APT was easy naked eye. Hope Kevin has or will see it soon.
