    Most of the first night at the dark sky site. All these and several deep sky
    objects. It was difficult not to see either a satellite or a meteor all
    night.

    Notes:
    1) Faster UNID passed this, I assume this was the Molniya object. UNID was a
    variable too, identified as 78-109G, the next item listed, which was new to
    me.
    2) Previously reported as 29250 for classfd.tle; this object seems to match
    path better, though as debris I am surprised I can see it, even in a 12"
    scope.
    3) 3 quick bright flashes within 0.5 s, no other variability noticed during
    pass.
    4) Naked-eye flasher. Other flashes seen but I was busy observing 90006 and
    couldn't count them all.
    5) 1 F @ 8m "off cycle" not timed.
    6) Assuming I missed 3 flashes due to faintness.
    7) Passed between Mars and Regulus at end!
    8) Significantly shorter cycle than last seen Dec 20 2007.
