    Departed Pennsylvania just in time to avoid grounding due to freezing rain and got home just in time to see Fobos-Grunt low in NW. Spotted at +2, faded to +5 and then seemed to be recovering before early shadow entry. If I saw a half cycle, it would mean full cycle is about 26s, but it seemed more like a flare. Only seen for 30s, so can't conclude which it was. 31702 below seen as UNID while watching Skymed 4 flare (nice!), both naked eye.
