    When I send my obs of this morning to Seesat-L, I saw Bjorns
    message of the NOSS-3 3 observation.
    Using Ted's TLE's I saw I got a nice pass this morning and 
    decided to give it a try. The thin clouds had gone almost 
    and the sky was still dark enough.

    After ending the obs of the rocket I looked for the two NOSS
    sats. Did see 1 object at about the right time and place, but 
    it was also flashing at about 6 to 7 sec. Lost it after a few
    flashes in the brighter getting pre-dawn sky. It was on the 
    same track as 05- 04 C.
