    The approx magnitude Intelsat 1R ( 26608 ) was at, at different times.
    
    Time ( UTC ) Magnitude       Position in R.A
    
    2:53:30      7.9             9 h 25 m  
    2:58:50      7.2             9 h 30 m
    3:00:40      6.3             9 h 32 m
    3:03:05      5.6             9 h 34 m
    3:16:10      6.1             9 h 48 m
    3:17:35      6.4             9 h 49 m
    3:21:10      7.1             9 h 53 m
    3:25:55      7.3             9 h 58 m
    3:30:40      7.7            10 h 02 m
    
    Sun was at 9 h 33 m
    
    I have noticed that Intelsat 1R more rapidly gain's in brighness, before it get's to the area
    around 12 hour difference in R.A from the sun. 
    
    Then it more slowly decreases in brightness, after it passes the area around 12 hour difference in
    R.A area from the sun.
