The Milstar Centaur (98010) made a pass that I was able to see in spite of some high, thin cloudiness. At 9:53:34.4 UTC (plus or minus 0.2), it passed a small fraction of a degree north of the bright star lambda something (possibly Scutum? -- a sort of semi-circle of 5 stars open to the west, with the brightest of the 5, lambda, being the middle one). That star, lambda, is very near 19h 05m RA, -5 Dec. (1950 coordinates). The Centaur was tumbling about once per second; I have .95, .95, .94, .94, .96, 1.10, .94, 1.09, 1.08, and .89 seconds. Its magnitude was at least +2.5, possibly brighter on some of the maxima. My location for this observation was 30.2392 north, 97.8959 west, about 200 meters above sea level.
