     The 1st obs of Lacrosse 2 was taken near alpha Aries with 10x50 binoculars
    leaning against the side of a car.
    Iridium 66 flared to -4 mag at 23.18.01 UTC watched unaided eye.
    Other obs with 8" dobs.
    Two objects were missed because of picking up wrong sat, but was able to id
    both and one was a first time sighting for me.
    Lots of snow on ground, not as much in driveway where I set up telescope.
    Temp at 20F.
    
    Lat. 39.4707 Lon. -79.3388 Alt. 2753 ft. -5 UTC
