    Method: Canon Digital Ixus 400 + ASTRORECORD astrometric software.

    The evenings session, after the morning session reported on earlier. Cold 
    (temperatures near zero), somewhat hazy conditions with moonlight, and twilight 
    during the 05-016A pass.
    
    05-016A was quite variable in brightness. When I picked it up in Cygnus at 
    17:22:00 in a blue stwilight sky it was bright, mag +1. It dimmed a bit, then 
    got back to +1, then dimmed slowly, and at 17:23:23 UTC it completely 
    disappeared in only a few seconds. The camera was open at that time and captured 
    the disappearance.
