    Subject: two blinkers to identify
    this evening I was doing routine drift alignment on my mount in southeastern
    Mass., and between adjustments I watched the skies. I saw a mag 2 or 3
    blinker at approx. 2351Z  at approx 20Hrs. 40 Min RA and +30 deg. 49 min
    DEC. Saw about 6 blinks about 8-9 secs apart and the last couple dimmed
    before I lost it. 
    The second one was at approx. 0002Z at 21H  42Min and 63 deg. 44 min.. I
    only saw 3 or so blinks of mag 2 or 3 before it disappeared.
    Wonder if this is enough info. for an ID...
