1) Again I saw USA 186 making strange brightness variations.

2) Ofeq 10 was very near on time but not exactly on track. I had a low
elevation pass so impossible to watch the optical characteristics.

3) As you can see up there, I saw the "dissapearing trick" of the Lacrosse
5 spacecraft. It passed from mag +1 to +6 in less than a half of second. It
mantained the +6 magnitude the rest of the pass.

4) Could not catch the Dragon spacecraft, sky was in twilight, but I had
luck and I watched the ISS minutes before of the Dragon pass and later at
night near Umi kochab. See the latest IOD. Low accuracy is because I saw at
naked eye.

5)USA 245 and USA 186 late. USA 129 early.

6) A bright UNID while I was setting up all things to observe. I recorded 2
times/positions and 1 position with no time, but it is making impossible to
decoding this. Will try again tomorrow. The satellite was on a inclination
of about 50 based on the track on the sky. It faded slowly into mag +6 at
an elevation of ~40.

Jon.
