    A somewhat humid, but reasonable sky (with aircraft contrails that kept hanging 
    on for quite some time). I captured the two evening Keyholes with the 50 mm, and 
    next targetted a few HEO objects with the 100 mm.
    
    96-072A briefly flared to mag. +0.5 at 20:49:21.7 UTC (Sep 8). The flare was 
    captured on a very fine image.
    
    Data on the targetted HEO objects (a.o. USA 198, USA 144 decoy) will follow 
    tomorrow, I am too tired now.
