    This is my 2nd time I've seen this in telescope, lots of fun. Not knowing
    how to do the observation, I used the approximate center of the tether for
    the points.
    About 10 seconds late on following el set, if I didn't make a mistake.

    In the telescope the object in the lower orbit was observed doing some 3 mag
    flashes, and at other times not visible, while the object in the higher
    orbit stayed steady with a 7 mag most of the time. The tether was easily
    visible.
    
    Tonight clouds.
