            We observed J002E3 at the George Observatory outside Houston last
    night. For those of us used to observing 19th-magnitude asteroids, this one
    (at around 16th magnitude) was a piece of cake! A very interesting object.
    (We'll turn in the astrometry tomorrow; I plan to observe it again tonight.)
    I encourage others to try for it also. Note you need to get ephemerides
    tailored to your observing location for this one. But, I guess satellite
    observers are well used to having to do that. :-)
