5:35 am local time (1035 UT) March 6th

slightly hazy skies, a bit of ground fog.  Primary concern was the moon.
Limiting magnitude was about 4, I was able to see the Mu Sco binary very
clearly.

Very distinctly looking straight line.  Not enough detail with the seeing
conditions to examine the ends clearly.  Tether appeared to be more
distinctly solid than the SEDS-2 tether.
