    Used Heavensat to generate observing info.  Used 7x50 binoculars.  Falcon, Colorado USA observation site.  Thin clouds in the observing region of the sky were problematic as was the lighter sky condition compared to last night
    1) BREEZE-M DEB,  38747,  2012-044-D  Not see due to observing conditions.
    2) EXPRESS MD2,  38745,	2012-044-B 
    Appeared around 2:39:30 UT. I only saw it for a fraction of a second but the orange tint seemed to be present.  The short observation period make that a questionable assessment.
    3&4)  TELKOM 3, 38744, 2012-044-A and BREEZE-M R/B, 38746, 2012-044-C
    Both were visible in the same field of view.  Supposedly Telkom was leading the R/B.  The lead object was around magnitude 3 and the trailing object 0.5 to 1 magnitude brighter.
