    This is probably stale information now, considering that the object
    is likely to have already decayed, but I did see it pass by Thursday
    evening (EDT).  At 00:52.8 UTC 29 April 2005 (i.e. 20:52.8 EDT on
    28 April), it zipped through the upper part of Auriga at quite a rapid
    clip, appearing at about 4.5 or 5 magnitude or so, varying slightly.
