NOTES:
--------
(1) As mentioned in yesterdays report I had a pointing error at start of
     evening. Ive determined this to be 2.1 degrees low so was able to
     salvage the above observations. I initially had no match for #20692
     but found that the track matched #20692 last seen 29 December 2014.
     What was remarkable was how bright it was - probably around mag +2.

Cheers
Greg
