    Hi all,
    
    Just came in from observing the two 2002-017 objects. First, the platform #27411
    was not visible in my 20x80 at 00:03 UT, Apr. 7, too much twilight ?
    
    The rocket stage #27410 was very interesting to watch. It passed 16.5 min later
    and I measured a period of 12.5 seconds. Its behavior was fun to follow. It
    reached a steady mag. 1 or 2 for a couple of seconds then diminished slowly to
    invisibility. It then abruptly brightened to near maximum and the cycle
    continued. It was fast also !
