    Hi all,
    
    I observed Lacrosse 5 (05-016A, 28646) this morning, and timed it's 
    "disappearing trick" again.
    
    I saw it emerge out of earth shadow above alpha Auriga at a bright mag. +1 at 
    about 5:19:00 UTC. It then crossed towards Umi, over Polaris, bright and steady.
    
    At 5:21:24  +/- 1s UTC at 45 deg  altitude in the N-NE it faded from mag. +1.5 
    to naked eye invisibility in just a few seconds.
    
    Pre-disappearance positions will follow in a second mail.
    
    - Marco
