    USA 129 was still on time at 19:23 UTC Aug.20 seen from 5919 with Sun at -7
    degrees.
    In fact I timed ROCSat 2 Ta Rk #28255 04018B appulsing alpha Cygni and
    followed it for ten seconds, when it was overtaken by the faster, brighter
    and lower USA 129 in the binocular field.
    
    Unfortunately, I couldn't decide which one to follow, and lost both.
    If it has been raised, it was not more than a few seconds late.
