    According to Heaven's Above, 'Unknown Object B' (04012C/28222) made a 72 degree pass just now, with an estimated magnitude of 2.8. It crossed the line from vega to the eastern horizon at 2010-09-05  00:12:35 +- 2 sec, and was significantly brighter than magnitude 2.8 (it and vega were the only visible objects in the sky). Unfortunately I had no elevation reference. It was bright white in color.
