    Last night (Wednesday PM January 9 local time), I again saw a few
    Telstar 401 (93-077A, 22927) flashes in Orion, at least one of them 
    very easy one-power.  One stopwatch click was at about 4:40:36 
    January 10 UTC.  Just now I found a report from west Tennessee 
    (Heads up, Jim Nix!) titled, "supernova type explosion in Orion", on 
    the Earth & Sky Web site, with the time of the event being 10:40 CST:

    I've submitted a follow-up message to that report.
    Also last night (Jan 10 UTC) also Iridium 920 (24871, 97-034C) did a
    great pass.  I got 30-40 clicks on it.  It flashed in three or four 
    separate episodes along its track.  I haven't finished getting data
    from the watch yet.
    It's cloudy here tonight.
