    Feb 13 AMC 23 BrzTank	(28926, 5-52C) was phenomenal naked eye object
    superfast from NW to SE as bright as Castor at best. Range was about 224
    miles at closest. I completely forgot positions for that nights Lacrosse 5
    pass due to seeing ETS-6 flashing to mag 5 (see below). But last night, I
    could not see any flashes in 12 x 60s.
