    It flared brightly in the North at around 60 degress, some seconds after my imaging session ended.(the system only reaches a certain part of the sky) Apparent speed was high but relative highbrightness enabled to capture it well. Ralf  Op 8-4-2011 22:16, Ralf Vandebergh schreef:

    Very nice pass indeed, just watched it, fast transit through zenith.

    Just captured USA-129- KH again close to 300 km distance (mag. 2.7). Comparable pass with one from several months ago. I still have to process
    the images of the earlier pass. Now I will process the images of both passes together and make one project of it. It will be interesting to
    compare both high-res results.
    Hope to present them soon, but can’t promise when exactly. I have to process many images yet. The delay was caused after my previous system 
    crashed and I had to find a new solution for firewire transmission (found in external device).
    Best regards,
    Ralf Vandebergh
