    Result of observations on August 30 during 80 degrees pass of the
    spacecraft ASTEX, also called (SESP 1971-2) which was designed to test advanced 
    development payloads. This spacecraft was launched in October 1971 at
    a Thor-Agena rocket.
    The object definitely has a well-visible elongated shape and all frames
    of the session tend to show the elongation, a few frames show some
    more detail. Magnitude was 4.1 and with adjusted exposure-time it
    could be reasonably captured using the normally used imaging/res-scale
