  • Next message: Tristan Cools: "new flashing object"

    Despite an almost full moon it was clear enough to observe sats.
    At 22:00 UT some clouds came in and also it became foggy.
    I saw several Perseids. This morning at 2:00 UT it was still foggy, but
    in from 40 degrees elevation upwards it was clear enough to see
    some Perseids.
    
    Saw a S, mag 0 pass of ISS at 21:23 UT
    
    00-  4 B 00-08-11 22:05      LB                       S, 3
    67-116 A 00-08-11 20:55:37   LB   18.5 0.5   2  9.3   AA,4->7 ->almost S, 6
    Just showed two flashes in the south, rest of the pass the sat was
    almost S
    69-  9 A 00-08-11 21:27:35   LB   62.2 0.2   4 15.6   FF, 4->i
    74-  1 B 00-08-11 21:12      LB                       almost S, 6
    74- 48 B 00-08-11 22:07      LB                       S, 5
    While watching this sat a more than mag 2 Perseid crossed my FOV
    90- 23 B 00-08-11 20:48      LB                       S, 5
    92- 73 B 00-08-11 20:45      LB                       almost S, 5
    95- 72 A 00-08-11 21:58      LB                       almost S, 6
    99- 39 A 00-08-11 20:14      LB                       S, 3
    99- 39 B 00-08-11 21:07:15   LB  272.6 0.5  37  7.37  AA,3->7 -> FF, 4->i
    From south to culmination in the west the sat was almost S; then it showed
    measurable flashes and in the north it flashed sharply. Timings: 27.75(4)
    7.88 7.06 6.10 7.14 7.79 6.58 7.67 7.39 7.71 7.12 7.91 7.13 8.81 7.28
    6.57 7.40 7.61 7.90 7.34 7.18 7.50 7.86 7.32 7.14 7.76 7.45 7.73 7.27
    7.22 7.46 7.33 7.50 7.75 sec.
    The flash behavior of this sat is somewhat Irr; partly due to the AA
    pattern,
    but also when it was FF in the north.
