    I've seen 04-052A and B on several passes and concur with Kevin that
    they appeared steady in brightness.  They appeared quite bright because
    my geometrical conditions were more favorable than Kevin's.  In IOD
    format:

    What these numbers mean: http://www.satobs.org/position/IODformat.html
    
    The quicksat intrinsic magnitudes average 3.4 and 4.1, respectively,
    and the [Matson's] Skymap standard magnitudes average 4.6 and 5.2 .
