    :Cosmos 1222 Rocket 3.6 18:33:50 10 S  18:37:53 81 ESE  18:39:17 43
    NNE-
    Seen naked-eye.               
    
    Mir 1.1 18:43:06 10 SW  18:44:33 28 SW  18:44:33 28 SW-
    Visible for only an instant,at third magnitude,immediately before
    extinction.
    
    :Resurs 01 Rocket 3.7 18:58:36 10 S  19:02:58 50 W  19:07:22 10 NNW-
    Became visible for five seconds,flared to the second magnitude for five
    seconds,and then promptly disappeared.
    
    :Cosmos 2227 Rocket 3.2 19:03:21 10 NNW  19:09:05 78 ENE  19:09:08 78
    ENE-
    It never showed up as I watched for it with my naked-eye.I am not
    absolutely certain that my sky was dark enough to permit observation of
    this object. 
    
    :ISS 2.8 19:23:16 10 W  19:23:52 12 WSW  19:23:52 12 WSW-
    Viewed against a darker sky than the last orbit,I can definitely affirm
    that the growing International Space Station has a reddish hue.
