    Some observations, about 15 miles by road from W
    entrance of Joshua Tree National Park, CA. Estd.
    location below. Date 3/2 local = 3/3 UTC.
    
    Tentative ID because time not noted: 06061 Cosmos 494
    r low in the E near alpha Hya. About 19:09 local =
    3:09 UTC. Near mag 3, bit brighter than predicted 4.5.
    
    This was not accurately recorded because we were
    actively observing comets C-2001 Y1 Juels-Holvorcem
    (nice in binoculars low in the NW) & C-2002 X5
    Kudo-Fujikawa (faint in binoculars low in the SSW)
    before they disappeared.
    
    27432 Feng Yun 1D r. Short flare to mag 1 as it passed
    over alpha & beta UMa in the NE a few degrees after it
    came out of eclipse. 19:28 local = 3:28 UTC.
    
    Also saw 23088 Cosmos 2278 r, 18748 Cosmos 1908, &
    13149 Cosmos 1354 r at one power.
