Gordon Garradd and I almost missed the 96-29A pass tonight (we are doing
astrometry on near-Earth asteroids at Siding Spring Observatory).  We ran out
with the pass almost over.  I failed to see it at all, but Gordon made the
following notes from his observation in 10x50 binoculars.

Thanks to Tony Beresford for alerting us to tonights passes.

Cheers, Rob McNaught
