    Nice clear sky. 05-042A showed a nice short mag -2 flare at 20:52:07.0 UTC (16 
    Aug). I captured it on an image but unfortunately a mispointer of the camera 
    made the sat run out of FOV just after the flare.
    
    03-009B was very bright during the first 2/3th of the pass but then grew faint.
    
    Around 20:47 UTC a nice slow fasher flashing to +2 was going south into Ophiuchus.
