2 November UTC (Sunday evening local); 30.3086N, 97.7279W, 150m.

NOSS 2-3 Rk (23907, 96-29B) grazed (one-power) Alpha Pegasus at 
about 0:21:15, just about 60-62 seconds early, I think.

Iridium 14 (24836, 97-30A) -- 
  - 0:41:01 (brighter of these two), 0:41:06
  - 0:41:26, 0:41:30 (different quality flash, and reddish),
    0:41:35 (brightest), 0:41:40, 0:41:45
  - 0:42:57, (next two *very* bright) 0:43:01, 0:43:06, 0:43:11

Iridium 11 -- I didn't see anything, but I was in position for
only the last 2/3 of the pass; before that I watched a -2 or -3 
flare of Iridium 13.
