    Actually they saw them 7/5 local not 7/6 UTC. Yes NOSS 2-1 does not hold
    out. The NOSS 2-2 set did pass around 0:20 UTC on 7/6 but they would have
    been in the north east and too low to the horizon. They again made a pass
    that would have met the location and direction at 4:12U. Wonder if the time
    estimate is off that much!
