A luscious Canadian high brought the most delightful weather and skies to 
this area (to celebrate the Cleveland bicentenary?) and I was able to take 
a close look at TiPS. 
 
When acquired at 960721 021852.08, above Arcturus, it was straight and LML 
"/" with a vertical angle of 30 degrees (perhaps a tad less, but more than 
25).  When lost at 022439.53, the vertical angle was 5 degrees or 0, it 
being essentially vertical "|".  The derivative of the vertical angle was 
approximately constant.  No sparkles were seen. 
 
I want to thank all of my correspondents for their answers and insights. 
I'm plowing thru my ever growing backlog and apologize for being so tardy. 
I found 3 blank lines inconveniently placed in the latest Molczan file 
from fc. 
 
Cheers.
