    With thanks to Mike McCants for pointing me to the FTP directory
    /pub/space/elements/molczan at kilroy.jpl.nasa.gov, here's a SatHunt
    post-diction based on an element 3 days after the date in question...
    U.T.C.    Elev.    Azimuth    Mag    Right Ascension    Declination
    18:57:20    0    311 [NW]  9.2     13h 27m 28s       23 31' 37.03"
    19:07:03   63   036 [NE]   6.8      01h 02m 32s       68 10' 20.80"
    19:08:28   53   082 [E]      7.0      01h 33m 47s       43 19' 05.86"
    
    The path through the stars remains virtually unchanged...
    > In astro terms, the Noss 2-1 trio would have passed near Alkaid in the
    tail

    shadow
