    I recently enjoyed watching these sats:
    
    20299 IUS R/B(1) at 18:33 last night, 2:33 2-13 UTC.
    Perhaps the fastest pass I have ever seen, moving at
    about 2 degrees / second, mag 3 as it passed under
    Mars.
    
    24720 HALCA (MUSES B) flared to mag 1 high in the S,
    about 18:23, or 2:23 2-13 UTC. I have seen other
    twinkling and flashing behavior from this sat.
    
    When I last saw 25860 OKEAN O in January, it flared
    three or four times to mag -5. I have seen the same
    behavior on some other passes. A good one to watch.
