    I was getting ready to look for Sich 1 when I saw a +2 UNID in 
    the west, going nearly straight up.  Fortunately, it went a 
    fraction of a degree north of an easy star, alpha Serpentis 
    Caput, so the position was approximately RA 15:48, Dec +6.85 
    (2000), at about 3:01:00 August 16 UTC.  Quickly deploying my 
    binoculars, I was able to see that it appeared to enter shadow 
    about 15 seconds later.  I don't yet have a new operational 
    stopwatch, so those times are plus or minus about five seconds.  
    Location was 30.3068N, 97.7267W, 150m.  I downloaded alldat.tle 
    but using Findsat have not found a match.
