    This weekend I observed a twin "daylight" Iridium flare, my first one-power
    NOSS trio, my first faint NOSS, and reacquired a "lost" KH. Details on DSat.
    
    Irid                        Az  El  Range Sun     Angle Mag

    The second one seemed as bright as the first, and it was like daylight.
    I took pictures, but I don't know if my aim and timing was correct.
    
    The NOSS trio was mag +3.1 to +3.5, did not fade until shadow entry in the E
    at 29 deg. el.
