    Hello all:
    I have just arrived from my roof. Today skies are clear and the night is
    perfect to make observations.
    At 21:22 CEST (19:22 GMT), ISS was the first object to be observed. It
    appeared crossing the sky from NW to NE, showing a magnitude of ~0.5.
    The station was keeping its brightness as it was moving away from my
    position. No flares were sighted. The maximum altitude it reached was of
    40 degress approx.
    At 21:30 CEST (19:30 GMT), Cosmos 2367 reached its maximum visibility
    (1.7 mag. - 80 deg. inclination), moving from WNW to NNE.
    At 21:42 CEST (19:42 GMT), Meteor 1-29 Rocket was also observed from my
    position. It showed a magnitude near 2,5 when reached 70 degrees of
    inclination. It crossed the sky from W to NNW.
    Meteor 1-29 Rocket appeared several minutes after the time showed at
    Heavens-Above (21:35 CEST - 19:35 GMT). Does anybody know if this rocket
    is tumbling?
    Best regards... and clear skies for all!
