I fell asleep in the late afternoon, missing the twilight window and a chance to
recapture NOSS 6 (C) seen two days earlier.

Did some imaging of GEO objects later in the evening, with the focus on Govsat-1
(18-013A), imaged as a "UNID" by Cees and me two days ago. It has drifted more
westwards now, and is much brighter and steady.

I have more objects to report from this session, but that will have to wait to
tomorrow.
