Last monday night I was watching together with several laymen
when I tried to find 96- 29 A based on a rather old elset.
I saw an object at about the predicted place low in Ophiuchus.
But with some many questions asked by the other people I was
not able to do a proper positional observation.
To night, when I am at home I shall look up its time and
estimated position. I only remember that it was variable
with a maximum brightness of magnitude 6 and invisible in
my 7 x 50 binoculars at its minimum. Flashing period was
several seconds.
