    This seems unusual enough to mention.  Last night I could see 
    only two of the NOSS 2-3 triplets.  The two I could see (leader 
    and outlier, I believe, so 96-029D and C, 23862 and 23908, I 
    think) were both +5 or brighter -- easy to see.  I was using 
    8x42 binoculars from the driveway of my parents' house in San 
    Antonio, Texas.  The weather was fine.  Even when they're quite
    faint, if I can see one of a trio I can see all three.  So this 
    was, for me, pretty unusual, especially since these three travel 
    so closely together.
