NOSS 2-2 (91-076 C, D, and E; 21799, 21808, 21809) was/were 
*easily* visible without binoculars earlier tonight (about
04:44-45 June 21 UTC), right up until they disappeared into
the Earth's shadow.  This was a great pass, but it would 
have been awesome without the moonlight.  I can understand
why people who don't know about them get excited when they
see them by accident.  Before them, with some difficulty I 
managed to find NOSS 2-1 (90-050 C, D, and E; 20691, 20692,
20642) with binoculars.  These observations were from E. 
Ney Musuem grounds, 30.307N, 97.727W, 150m.

Superbird A (89-041A, 20040) has been nice in binoculars
lately in spite of the moonlight.  Usually I've been able 
to time it for about six minutes -- tonight from about 
3:51:43 to 3:57:58.
