Re: Any "Humanity Star" sightings?

Has been observed and videoed by an observer in Pukehina,  Bay of Plenty,
New Zealand on a shadow entry pass with acquisition at 0106 on the 27th New
Zealand time (1206 on the 26th UTC.)
Video is available (in a somewhat controversial thread as some astronomers
doubt the merits of the object in view of its effects on astrophotography!)
on the NZ Astronomers page on Facebook.
I had hoped to observe this pass (not a very good one for me though) but
was clouded out and anyway slept through the alarm so didn't even check!
