    I forgot to mention that I also searched for USA 116 in the interval 
    +2/+28 min on (SGP4) predictions from the 05249 elset (-24/+2 on my 
    search elset issued for 06060, now :
    USA 116 search
    1 53728U 95066A    6101.93680471  .00001000  00000-0  50000-4 0    22

    This was a high eastern pass,searched mainly at 1-power.
    USA 116, if still in orbit, should now be very close to perigee, (with 
    shadow exit around 60N), so the previous pass was at around 10 deg 
    altitude.
    I searched it for roughly the same interval, with my new cheap, 
    lightweight 10*50 (gives me nearly one magnitude more, because my pupils 
    dont dilate as much as they did).
    But my limit magnitude with humidity and moonlight on that pass was 
    about +6.5.
    
    My passes, and the Moon, are now moving later and into the west, so I 
    put my hopes a week into the future, possibly for a full-track search.
