    HAPPY & CLEAR 2007 TO ALL!!!
    
    The first evening of 2007 was very clear. Hopefully this sets the trend for 
    2007. It was quite windy, and observations were done in twilight and with a 
    near-full moon above the horizon.
    
    97-064A does not show up well on the images: faint trails. Dropped one point 
    from the second image as it was obviously in error. 97-064A was some 0.5s late 
    relative to a 3 day old elset.
    
    ISS (98-067A) made a nice pass culminating at 40 degrees elevation. I picked it 
    up low in the west, it was mag. -1 throughout the pass (I could not see its low 
    eastern trajectory part though). Around culmination and after it it was a bit 
    orange again. Positions are reported for calibration purposes.
