    I experienced sudden, deep fades on the nights of May 12 and 13 UTC. They
    occurred somewhat low in the north, as phase angle increased, so I expected some
    fading, but not so sudden or deep. I lost the object in both cases. I suspect it
    may be rotating slowly, or has an unusually high coefficient of phase.
