    Hi Ted and Kevin,
    
    My sky was clear in the area of the predicted passes for both the NOSS
    payload and the Centaur. NOSS 3-4 was predicted at 01:05 UTC and Centaur at
    01:44 on June 17. Both obs were negative at +/- 5 min. They were in bright
    twilight. I used a 16-inch telescope with a wide angle eyepiece for the
    payload pass targeted between Saturn and a 5.7 mag star 8 Leonis that I
    could easily see. For the Centaur pass I used my 20x80 with a limiting mag
    of about 5. Only one ref star was seen.

    Difficult to say for certain, so it is worth a look. Allow at least 5 min
    time uncertainty, and several deg track uncertainty.
